Thea Koerner House is playing host to students and staff taking part in the 28 graduation ceremonies happening on campus between May 23rd and May 31st.
The Ballroom, Thea’s Lounge and the Penthouse are all used as robing rooms for the staff and students to prepare for the ceremonies. Once everyone is ready the procession heads out from the Thea Koerner House to the Chan Centre where the ceremonies take place.
Two of the 2017-18 GSS Executive team were part of the graduating class during this week’s ceremonies.
President Taran Dhillon graduated on May 23rd with a Master’s in Journalism. The next day Keskine Owusu-Poku the GSS FEOO (Financial and Executive Oversight Officer) collected his degree as a Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs. Graduating from UBC is always a major achievement, but it’s a particular milestone for our Executives who combine their studies with their work at the GSS.
