Congratulations to the Class of 2017 and welcome to the USMC Convocation hub! This is your home for everything you will need to plan for a memorable day with family and friends. Graduands, please do not forget to RSVP with both USMC and U of T for the various events taking place throughout the day.

 

Greetings from President David Mulroney

Dear Graduand of 2017,

Early Congratulations and good wishes are sent your way as you take the final steps toward the completion of your undergraduate degree.  It is my pleasure to take this opportunity to invite you to attend your Graduation Exercises on, Friday, June 16th, 2017.

You and your parents are invited to attend the Baccalaureate Mass on June 16th  at 10:30 a.m. in St. Basil’s Church.  For our graduands this is a St. Michael’s Tradition!  This year the presider at our Liturgy will be The Most Reverend Wayne Kirkpatrick, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Toronto, Northern Pastoral Region.

The Academic Procession for Mass will assemble in front of Brennan Hall, south entrance, at 10:10 a.m. Graduands are expected to wear gowns for the Mass. Information concerning gowns can be found at Convocation Gown and Hood Rental.  After Mass, the USMC Alumni Association and the USMC Young Alumni Committee will host a BBQ luncheon for you and your guests on the patio by the Dodig Family Student Commons “The COOP” (the event will be moved inside “The COOP” and Charbonnel Lounge in the event of inclement weather).

Following the formal Convocation exercises at Convocation Hall, St. Michael’s will host a Reception for graduands and guests in “The Coop” and Odette Lounge in Brennan Hall.  An Awards Presentation for  graduates will be presented in Odette Lounge at 5:30 p.m.

I look forward to seeing you on June 16th.

Sincerely,

David Mulroney
President and Vice-Chancellor
