Convocation is approaching and it's a good idea to start planning for your big day now. 

We've got a list of simple tips and tricks – #GBConvoHacks – to help ensure your big day runs as smoothly as possible.

  1. The deets - Read over our outline of what you can expect on your convocation day.


     
  2. Live stream - Family and friends who can't attend your graduation? Tell them to watch our live stream.


     
  3. Where to eat - Going to lunch with family and friends after your ceremony? Reserve now. Check out a full list of restaurants around the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.


     
  4. Where to park - Parking downtown can be … a challenge. Be proactive and plan where you'll park now using the Green P parking map.


     
  5. See your post in lights – Tag your pics with #GBConvo and we'll post them on our social wall at the Sony Centre for your friends and family to see.


     
  6. Airplane mode – We know you'll be capturing graduation highlights with selfies, texts and social posts. Please make sure you put your phone on silent, or, turn it off during the ceremony.


  7. Hi, my name is … - Our announcers will be backstage before your ceremony. Arrive a bit early if you'd like to clarify the pronunciation of your name with them.
