Greater demand to attend graduation

May 18th, 2022

There was an overwhelming response from graduating students indicating they plan to attend the graduation ceremony at Place des Arts on June 22. As a result, the Communications Office had to make some major changes to the proceedings, including the addition of a third ceremony at 10 a.m.

By the deadline to respond, over 800 about-to-be Dawson graduates had RSVP'd yes! Many of these students were deprived of their high school graduation in 2020. The last time Dawson had an in-person graduation was in June 2019.
