Spring Valedictorian Nominations Are Open Until March 4

Spring nominations for Valedictorian opened on January 28 and will close March 4. Valedictorian applications are an excellent opportunity for graduating (undergraduate or graduate) students to nominate a fellow graduating student who best represents the student community at McMaster University.

Valedictorians will demonstrate high leadership and communication skills. In addition, and pursuant to the selection policy, applications will be evaluated on such factors as personal achievement and community outreach. The MSU provides undergraduate student representation on the valedictorian selection committees for each faculty.

Valedictorians will deliver their speech (no longer than five minutes) to the convocation in which they graduate. Attendees will include graduating students, faculty, honoured guests, family, and friends.

The Valedictorian Nomination package is available here or picked up in person from the MSU office (MUSC 201).

Completed valedictorian nomination packages will be submitted to the Student Experience – Academic Office front desk in DSB 112 no later than Friday, March 4 at 4:30 p.m. Please read the nomination package carefully to ensure you have the appropriate information. Late nominations will not be accepted.
