A reminder that our Class of 2020 will be invited back to participate in Convocation in 2021, should such an event be permitted based on allowances for large gatherings.
Grad Show Participation
It’s not too late to participate in the new Grad Show website. This website will showcase your chosen piece for Grad Show, but also includes a personal portfolio page where you can exhibit up to ten more pieces. This site will remain live until next year’s Convocation and is an opportunity to exhibit your work for a year. If you don’t get a chance to do this before it opens tomorrow, you can still participate and upload your work after Convocation by contacting the Illingworth Kerr Gallery at
AUArts Emails
Graduates will continue to have access to their email addresses until August 15, 2020, allowing time to transfer your contacts from your university account to your personal account as necessary.  Reminders will be sent leading up to August 15, 2020.
