Convocation coverage and AU’s location

We love to hear from you! Send your questions and comments to, and please indicate if we may publish your letter.

Thank you again for publishing the articles on convocation. After reading it makes me want to attend more upon my own graduation.

I found it interesting when Debbie Jabbour talked about bringing Athabasca home to Athabasca, and that this might have had an effect on Athabasca’s ability to compete in the global marketplace. When I originally investigated attending AU, the fact that it was in such a remote location actually enticed me to attend.(I live in Ontario) I figured if these people are in such a remote location then they’re going to have a better sense of distance education. Had it been in Calgary or Edmonton my thoughts would have been it’s just another University.
