Spring Convocation

Class of 2020, 2021 & 2022

You are remarkable.

For the first time in more than two years, the University of Lethbridge community came together to celebrate convocation in person. It was incredible!

We want you to know how proud we are of your achievements: you’ve adapted, persevered and succeeded. These experiences, along with the relationships you’ve built, are at the heart of your University of Lethbridge education. And now, they are forever part of our shared history. Take pride in your accomplishment; we can’t wait to watch you carve your path and make your mark on the world as ULethbridge alumni. Here's to closing one ULethbridge chapter and to the beginning of another. Congratulations to the classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022!
