#CarletonGrads2021 is here!

The university may not be holding Convocation ceremonies this spring, but the public is invited to honour Carleton’s 2021 graduates by accessing special celebratory videos from the carleton.ca home page or the Carleton Spring Graduation Celebration 2021 webpage, which will go live on Monday, June 21, 2021 at 7 a.m. EDT.

The university will highlight a different faculty each day during the week of June 21 to 25. On the morning of each day, graduates in that faculty will receive an email with a link to a personalized experience which they can share with family and friends. New grads from programs within the Faculty of Science can tune in to the Faculty of Science Virtual Graduation Celebration on June 22. 

Faculty of Science Virtual Graduation Celebration

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we released a series of videos dedicated to (and featuring) Carleton Science graduates via Instagram and Facebook stories as well as YouTube.

We encourage members of our community to post their own video shoutouts and virtual high-fives to Carleton Science grads, and show us how they’re celebrating on social media. When posting online, remember to use #CarletonScience and #CarletonGrads2021. We’ll be checking these hashtags, liking and sharing throughout the month of June.

In addition to our videos, there are plenty of departmental celebrations taking place across the faculty this month. Scroll down on this page to learn more.

Congratulations to the Carleton Science Class of 2021, and we look forward to celebrating with you on social!
