Monday, May 30, 2 pm

TCU Place

35 22nd Street East


 Monday, May 30—2 pm

Graduating: Colleges of Agriculture and Bioresources, Engineering

 Honorary Doctor of Laws: Rajat M. Nag

He went on to manage billion-dollar portfolios and work with thousands of people, but Rajat M. Nag fondly remembers the University of Saskatchewan playing a pivotal role in his early development as an international banking leader. Originally from Delhi, India, Nag earned two graduate degrees during his time at the U of S, before beginning his career as an economist with the Bank of Canada and later serving as managing director general of the Asian Development Bank.

Student story of interest: Kyle Bonilla

Born and raised in Saskatoon, the 23-year-old engineering student was a member of the heralded University of Saskatchewan Space Design Team (USST) that designed and built the Mars rover that finished first in the European Rover Challenge in Poland on Sept. 6. The 25-member team, made up of students in engineering, business, arts and science, also placed seventh in the University Rover Challenge in Utah earlier in the year. Bonilla is graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (computer engineering) this afternoon and is available for interviews at the convocation ceremony.

To media who plan to attend convocation:

    • Photographers may take photos from anywhere—except on the stage once the ceremonies begin.

    • Reserved space for media is located on the second floor to the left of the stage (all other seats are reserved for the graduating students and their guests).

    • The route graduates use as they proceed to the stage must be kept clear.
