We have several traditions at our convocation ceremonies:
- All the faculty
areon the stage to congratulate each graduate as they receive their credential.
- In the 1980s, the President's Medal was added to convocation. The medal
honoursoutstanding graduates for their academic excellence and campus leadership

- The academic recessional concludes with faculty, board members and senior staff lining the hallway and clapping for the graduates as they exit.
