Attending Convocation (Faculty members)

All faculty members who have confirmed their attendance for convocation are asked to meet in the Courtyard Room 45 minutes prior to each ceremony where pinning assistance will be available. A final count of faculty will be done 30 minutes prior to each ceremony and reserved seating will be adjusted, so please arrive in time for this count. Faculty will then be lined up outside the gymnasium doors at 9:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. for the Grand March.

Attending Convocation (Staff members)
Staff members are invited to join the staff gauntlet in Centennial Hall at 9:45 a.m. for the morning ceremony and 1:45 p.m. for the afternoon ceremony to congratulate graduates as they proceed to the gymnasium. If you plan to attend a ceremony, please check with your supervisor to confirm adequate coverage of your area is available. Space in the gym is limited, so please help us to ensure all guests are settled prior to finding a seat.


Faculty gowns will be available for pick-up on Thursday, June 13 from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Friday, June 14 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. in room S154. Gowns must be returned to room S154 following the ceremony. 

*NEW FOR 2019! All faculty gowns will be ordered directly through the supplier, Gaspard. Although gown orders are processed exactly as received, the supplier often has to send substitutions based on availability. If you wish to purchase your own regalia to avoid the possibility of a substitution, this can also be done on the Gaspard website. All questions and concerns can be sent directly to Gaspard.

Dress Guidelines
The convocation gowns are warm, so consider the weather and wear appropriate clothing. Business dress is suggested and comfortable shoes as you will be walking up and down stairs. Gowns typically reach just below the knees.

Faculty Luncheon
Medicine Hat College faculty are invited to attend a luncheon on the cafeteria mezzanine between noon and 1 p.m.
