Commencement Dinner 2017 | University College

Commencement Dinner

Our annual Commencement Dinner is a chance to celebrate the beginning of another academic year for our students.

Prior to this year’s dinner, students and staff gathered in the Giblin Courtyard for a pre-dinner function, mingling and taking photos. As this was the first Commencement Dinner held in Syme Dining Hall, there was much excitement surrounding the highly anticipated event.

The dinner included a delicious three-course meal, followed by two acoustic performances by UC students. The audience was serenaded by first year students, Angus McKintosh and Michael Dawson singing ‘Tears in Heaven’. Second year students Jayden Galbraith and Andy Song also teamed up to deliver a crowd-pleasing rendition of ‘Stand by Me’. With Jayden on drums, Andy working the room with his vocals and guitar, and the audience joining them for the chorus, it made for an unforgettable evening.

Although the event was slightly delayed due to the opening of the Syme Dining Hall, the night was still a true success.

UC wishes the students all the best for their exciting university journey ahead.
