2017 Graduation season kicks off

Brittany Coates graduated with a double major in human nutrition and psychology at the 2016 Auckland Graduation ceremony.

More than 1000 students will graduate across six ceremonies in Auckland next week, kicking off Massey’s graduation events for 2017.

The ceremonies start on Wednesday morning at Takapuna’s Bruce Mason Centre, and continue twice-daily until Friday, along with events to celebrate Māori and Pasifika graduates.

A total of 1187 students will graduate, including 16 students with doctorates and 242 receiving master’s degrees. Graduation ceremonies will be held in Palmerston North and Wellington next month.

Massey staff will be on hand to take photos for social media after each ceremony. Photo booths will be set up by the waterfront outside Takapuna Beach Café. It's a great chance to get some more casual photos with family and friends. These photos will be posted on Facebook after each ceremony, for students to share, like and comment on.

Twitter and Instagram users attending graduation day, whether in academic robes or as family and friends, are encouraged to share highlights using the hashtag #MasseyGrad.

You can watch a live stream of each ceremony here.
