Convocation 2015: social media highlights from the fall ceremonies

Nothing brightens up a gloomy autumn day like stepping into a hall filled with graduates ready to change the world with their hard-earned knowledge.

Convocation definitely brings out the love between U of T grads and their proud families and friends – and last week’s ceremonies were no exception. 

Families, friends and fiancées turned out in droves to celebrate their graduates. Those unable to attend in person got in on the party from afar thanks to a livestream that was broadcast throughout the ceremonies or, in at least one case, through a play-by-play from a tech-savvy dad with an ipad. 

Throughout the week, grads were encouraged to use the hashtag #UofTGrad15 to take part in the U of T convocation story as it took shape online.  

These posts were projected on the social media stream inside a large party tent on front campus, known as Convocation Plaza, and included in our weekly wrap-up stories.
