After two years of hosting convocations online, Humber students will once again get to wear caps and gowns for in-person ceremonies to be held between June 14-17.
Selina Sapone, a second-year early childhood education student said she can’t wait for her loved ones to be able to share in the big day.
“I am looking forward to graduating with my friends and seeing my family there supporting me,” said Sapone
When asked if she feels if this is a step toward the “old normal”, she said “I feel like it is because the past two years we’ve been at home in lockdown, so it’s good to be out and graduating in-person”
Jaskanwar, a second-year Media Foundation student said when he was a student at Seneca he had an online graduation. He’s looking forward to seeing Humber students in caps and gowns.
“I was fearful this year it might happen again but when my professor told us that we are going to be off-line on in June I was really excited or super excited I should say”
He also said that he does hope that the masks will be lifted for his graduation.
Celeste Garcia, second-year food and nutrition management student explained it’s exciting after being away for so long
“Being a student is hard as it is and doing online schooling it was challenging, and you know as classmates in my program we all made friends really quickly because it’s a small program so when we came back into campus, we kind of just pushed ourselves, it was nice to feel friendship and feel part of a group” she went on to say “It would be just an amazing experience to graduate together in person”
Raidyn Brodhager, a first-year Radio Broadcasting student says that even though he isn’t graduating this year, he’s glad in-person convocation is returning since he had to graduate from high school virtually.
When asked if he feels hopeful about having his graduating in person, Brodhager said “I honestly can’t wait for the world to get back to the way it was, it’s just good to be at Humber and in-person with fellow students.”
