Contributing to campus life

Alumni Week Logo


Alumni Week, early February, is the annual celebration of UVic grads. It’s a great time for alumni to come back to campus, renew friendships, and remember their UVic days. 

Campus and global service projects Since 2004, Campus Service Projects, currently total over $40,000, have benefited the university and its students and are one of the most important ways that the students leave a UVic legacy before they graduate. 

Diploma frame and flower sales: Money raised from the sales of diploma frames and flowers at convocation helps support student and alumni programs.

Graduates can pre-order a diploma frame, from a wide selection, through the UVic Bookstore and pick it up in the University Centre after their convocation ceremony. Volunteers frame the graduate’s diploma after their ceremony. Diploma frames and roses will also be available on-site during convocation in the University Centre. Visit the UVic Ceremonies and Events Convocation website to pre-order your frame or flowers.

Scholarships, bursaries and awards totalling more than $25,000 are awarded annually to UVic students through the UVic Alumni Association. For more information and to apply, visit UVic Student Awards and Financial Aid.
