Convocation DVD

To order a DVD copy of your ceremony, complete and submit a Convocation DVD Request Form. DVD copies of the Spring and Autumn Convocations from 2008 and forward are available. To purchase a DVD of the available Convocation(s), you must fax, mail or drop off your form in person to Student Central, Room 1120, Western Student Services Building. DVD costs are $20/ceremony DVD + mailing charges. For more details, see the form. DVDs will be available 4-6 weeks after the requested Convocation date. They may be requested at any time.


At Convocation

Attending graduates will have their photo taken at Convocation and Western will provide each a 5x7 portrait free of charge. Due to the GradImages set-up, guests will not be allowed to approach the stage to take photos of their graduate as they cross the stage. Cameras are allowed in the auditorium.

Some suggestions for photo opportunities on campus after the ceremony: The courtyard by the 3M Centre, the front gates by the Western Sign, UC Hill in front of the tower, the Ivey Garden (back of University College), the courtyard by UC (to the North), in front of the McIntosh Gallery.

Important: At Western University, Convocation is an exciting event showcasing our students' success. For that reason, photographers from Western will be taking photos during the event which may be used by the University for promotional or archival purposes. The photos taken during Convocation may or may not include your recognizable image. By participating in Convocation, you consent to being photographed and authorize the University to use the photographs in print, digital or web based format for its promotional and archival purposes.
