AU’s 2021 convocation is online, for a second year in a row. To expand the virtual experience, we browsed through the archives for some glimpses of on-site convocation.
Tents and harps and food, oh my! Carla Benevides describes the feast for the eyes, ears, and taste buds that was Convocation 2004. “This was not your normal run-of-the-mill graduation event, and to me it is reflective of how unique this university really is.” Convocation 2004 – Photo Album and On The Scene Report – Convocation Extraordinaire, June 23, 2004.
Photos tell a story. Many AU students never have the opportunity to visit AU, or the town of Athabasca AB. Here are some photo montages from on-site AU convocations over the years: Convocation 2008 Photo Album, Photo Feature – The Road to Convocation (2014), At Convocation – A Photo Feature, Part II “Inside AU” (2016), and The Road at Convocation (2018.)
