In videos: Valedictorian speeches from convocation

June 22, 2022

Advice from the graduating class of 2022

One of the key elements of each of VIU's convocation ceremonies is the valedictory address. 

Elected by their peers, a valedictorian gives a congratulatory address to fellow graduates and their friends and family. This year, we decided to do things a little differently, with valedictorians representing the different Faculties rather than one valedictorian per ceremony. Below, you'll find the valedictorian videos for each Faculty.

Siddhanth Arikari & Lauryn Mackenzie, Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Kayla Passmore & Victoria Ross, Faculty of Education

Timilehin Maryam Olayiwola, Faculty of Health and Human Services

Demitria Rae Rounis, Faculty of Management

Nicole DiCastri & Emmerson Pollard, Faculty of Social Sciences

Baneesha Gill & Gordon Skocic, Faculty of Science and Technology

Hanna Price, Faculty of Trades and Applied Technology
