More celebration and fun are in store for new grads at the September graduation with initiatives being trialled to enhance the graduation experience for students and their guests.
Feedback from graduates and students called for more fun and an ability to bring more family members and friends. September graduations will welcome new grads in a festive atmosphere that includes informal photo spots for shots with family and friends. Graduating students will be able to purchase tickets so friends and family can share in their milestone with more people. A live stream of ceremonies set up on campus will accommodate extra guests who can attend receptions with their grads.
Alumni volunteers have been recruited and will be on board at each ceremony, assisting new grads and sharing tips to stay connected and benefit from the UWA community after graduation.
Graduations will run from 10 – 21 September and, in another first, three ceremonies will take place on Saturday 10 September.
