Top 5 Tips for Convocation

  • 1. Arrive on time!

    You don’t want anything getting in the way of the ceremony, especially being late, so give yourself extra travel time just in case there is heavy traffic.

    You can be fashionable and functional. Comfort is key to preparing yourself for continuous standing and lots of walking on your graduation day.

  • 3. Bring your own water bottle

    Stay hydrated! Bring a reusable water bottle that you can refill throughout the day.

  • 4. Prepare for a lot of clapping

    Manage your clapping pace throughout the event so that your hands do not get tired quickly.

    Enjoy your graduation, and good luck!
