Highlights from this year’s spring convocations
It is, without doubt, one of life’s most important milestones. And between May 31 and June 16, some 13,500 U of T students experienced that tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with receiving a university degree.
Among them was Mihil Patel, who received the John Black Aird award for being the top student at U of T. It is the fourth year in a row that a student from UTSC has received the honour. Patel graduated with a bachelor of science degree.
City Hall lit the Toronto sign in blue and white, and a group of engineering students used the opportunity to add a few letters of their own. Most new grads celebrated their achievement with friends and family on front campus.
Joining this spring’s convocations were 10 honorary graduands, including Gerald Schwartz, the chairman and CEO of Onex Corp. and Linda Schuyler, creator of the famed Degrassi series.
