Convocation 2020


Convocation is the most important ceremony of your academic career, an opportunity to celebrate your years as a Western undergraduate and the opening of the next phase of your life. Even though we were unable to hold the usual events in June 2020, we celebrated with our students through the wonder of modern technology!

Watch the video above and try to figure out which faculty member wrote each poem.

Hint: each professor in the video wrote at least one poem.
