Typically we would celebrate your success at our annual convocation ceremony in June, and to be honest, it is one of our favourite days of the year. Though we are disappointed to not be able to do the same this year, it is still important to us to acknowledge your achievement and to mark this important milestone.
Beginning in mid-June, watch your mail for your Grad Box, created just for the graduating class of 2020! In this box, you will find the parchment you worked so hard to earn, along with other items to celebrate your achievements. Please visit AccessCOTR to make sure we have your correct mailing address on file.
When you receive your box, we encourage you to capture some memories by recording a short video or snapping photos of you opening your Grad Box and revealing your parchment. Please share these moments on your social media accounts using #COTRgrad2020 and be sure that they’re viewable by the public so we can see them too! Keep an eye on our College social channels as well to see updates and our favourite posts from you and your fellow classmates.
On Friday, June 26 we held a Video Watch Party. Though this virtual event was different from how we typically recognize convocation, we wanted to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work and dedication you have put into your education.
We know many of our graduates would still like their chance to walk across the Convocation stage. Therefore, we would also like to extend an invitation to you, and the entire College of the Rockies Class of 2020, to participate in a future Convocation Ceremony. An invitation will be sent next year when we have more details. At that time, you’ll be able to indicate whether you’re interested in participating.
