“Over the course of my four years here I’ve always come to the graduating exhibition reception. It is always exciting to see the work of the graduates and how diverse each year is” says fourth-year student Connor Charlesworth. “The show really is the culmination of four years of hard work and so it’s a major milestone for us students in terms of professionalism. It’s always nice to see the community come out and look at what we have been up to and see the talent that UBCO produces. I always have a great time and am sure this year will be no exception!”
