Past Valedictorians

A valedictorian gives a farewell and congratulatory speech addressed to the students, their guests, and the institution. There is one valedictorian selected from the class of graduating students for each ceremony; these valedictorians are given five minutes to address their peers at the convocation ceremony.  The valedictorians are selected by the students in the graduating class via an online election process.

For more information about the valedictorian selection process, please see www.viu.ca/convocation/valedictorian.asp
