Spring 2020 Celebrations

While last year’s Spring Convocation ceremonies were postponed due to COVID-19, Memorial was keen to celebrate students having completed their academic programs!

Hats Off!

Everyone was invited to tune in on Thursday, May 28, at 7 p.m. to enjoy Hats Off! a 40-minute Facebook Live virtual event celebrating Memorial's class of 2020!

Hats Off will feature Trent McClellen, Alan Doyle, Fortunate Ones and Jenny Mallard.

Watch the recording of a fun and inspiring online celebration featuring comedian Trent McClellan, musician and author Alan Doyle, President Vianne Timmons, musical group Fortunate Ones and member of the class of 2020 Jenny Mallard.

Congratulatory Messages

Memorial University graduates were not alone in celebrating convocation virtually. Social distancing orders forced universities worldwide to cancel or postpone the gathering of friends and family in traditional in-person ceremonies.

The Governor General and Prime Minister released messages to graduates across the country recognizing their achievements at this challenging and unprecedented time. 


From video backgrounds to Facebook Frames, we also assembled some custom tools to help students share photos and videos to celebrate graduation! Visit mun.ca/convocation/celebration for #MUNgrad2020 virtual resources.
