Reflections on Convocation
Convocation is an important time in the life of any university, and a time for all members of the McMaster community to share in celebrating the successes of our students and anticipating all that they will achieve in the future. Both President David Farrar and Chancellor Santee Smith will be sharing their reflections on the significance of convocation as part of the celebrations.
