Student Involvement

During the graduation ceremony there are many different ways for both students and graduands to get involved including student performances, class representative, Master of ceremony and so on. Below, we have listed all the ways you can be involved and how to get in touch.

Please take a look and nominate yourself for any of these opportunities before the respective deadlines. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to graduation@luc.leidenuniv.nl


The valedictorian will be selected based on the highest GPA. This student will be informed two weeks before the ceremony and invited to give the valedictorian speech. The valedictorian speech is scheduled after the conferring of the degrees.

Class Representative

The class representative is chosen by the graduating class. Graduands who wish to fulfill the class representative duties are invited to sign up for the position of Class Representative through the registration form. Once the list of applicants is complete all graduands will be asked (by e-mail) to vote for their preferred representative . 

Voting for the class representative is possible until June 1st, 2022. 

Responsibilities of the Class Representative:

  • Give a witty and inspiring speech at the graduation ceremony.
    Opposed to the perhaps more academic speech of the valedictorian, this speech would be based upon the social and community experiences of LUC, as well as the academic ones. 
  • A life-long commitment to alumni association Evolucio: first point of contact for the Evolucio board to reach the alumni of the class of 2022.


We have reserved two time slots in the ceremony for a student performance. The performers have already been chosen. It is no longer possible to register for this. 

Master of Ceremony

The Masters of Ceremony have already been chosen. It is no longer possible to apply fot his role.
