St. Clair College To Graduate Record Number This Week

St. Clair College will graduate 5,800 students this week during the school’s 52nd annual convocation, making it the largest group of students in its history.

“We’ve never had this many graduates, ever,” said St. Clair College Registrar Michael Silvaggi. “It’s an increase of over 2,000” overall.

The record numbers will see the college for the first time move the Windsor graduations off campus to the WFCU Centre.

The Chrysler Theatre in the Centre for the Arts has been the setting for convocation ceremonies in previous years, but the downtown venue was “getting a little cozy,” St. Clair College President Patti France said, even before this year’s growth in student numbers.

“We were having to accommodate overflow guests by setting up satellite seating throughout the Centre and remote-broadcasting the ceremonies on TVs,” she said.

“We’re very thankful that our community partner, the WFCU Centre, enables us to welcome everyone – grads, family and friends – under one roof.”

The first Windsor session at the WFCU Centre begins at 1:30pm Tuesday for students in Community Studies, Health Sciences and Nursing.

The second session begins at 6:30pm Tuesday for students in Engineering Technologies, Skilled Trades and Media, Art and Design.

The third and fourth sessions, for all of the students in the Zekelman School of Business and Information Technology, will be held Wednesday, at 1:30pm and 6:30pm.

The Zekelman School of Business and Information Technology will have the largest group, with nearly 2,400 graduates taking the stage.

Sessions five and six will be held at the Chatham campus HealthPlex. Session five will be held at 10:30am for the graduating students from the Chatham Campus, and session six will be at 2pm for the students from the Ace Acumen campus in Toronto.
