Alumni Welcoming Reception

To celebrate the achievements of graduating students, Vancouver Island University in partnership with the VIU Alumni Association will host a reception immediately following each convocation ceremony at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in the Mt Benson Ballrooms A/B and Newcastle Island Lobby. 

Attending your graduation reception is a great opportunity for you, your family and friends to meet up with your professors and classmates, take pictures and have some refreshments. The receptions are free to attend and you can stay for as little or as long as you want.Convocation Reception New Backdrop

These pictures will be posted on the Alumni Association's Facebook page within 48 hours of the ceremonies.
