Oct. 04, 2022 – Media Release
Halifax, N.S. — Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) will hold its special fall convocation on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at 6 pm. This will be made up of three regional ceremonies to celebrate graduates of the Class of 2022 whose program completion timeline was extended beyond the June ceremonies due to issues related to pandemic disruptions.
“Convocation is the culmination of our students’ hard work, determination and perseverance during these challenging times,” says NSCC President Don Bureaux. “It’s an honour to celebrate this important milestone in the journeys of all our graduates as they work toward achieving fulfillment in their lives and careers. I am so pleased to recognize the approximately 400 graduates in our special fall celebrations.”
The ceremonies will be held at:
- Burridge Campus Gym, Yarmouth (Burridge, Shelburne Campus graduates)
- Annapolis Valley Campus (AVC) Gym, Middleton (AVC, Kingstec and Lunenburg Campus graduates)
- Akerley Campus Gym, Dartmouth (Akerley, Ivany and IT Campus graduates)
Ceremonies that were originally planned for the Truro and Marconi Campuses, have been postponed due to Hurricane Fiona. A new date will be shared with impacted graduates soon.
