I would like to draw your attention to the directions for the Academic Honors Convocation scheduled for April 1, 2017. If you will be participating in the procession, please arrive at the Cintas Center by 8:15 a.m. Robing areas have been set aside in the Schiff Family Conference Center. You will need to bring your own academic apparel. A continental breakfast will be available.
Students will line up on the concourse and the line of march will be in one row. About 8:50 a.m. faculty, staff and stage party will move down the stairs in two rows towards the banquet center. Students will lead the procession, followed by faculty and staff, then the stage party.
Promptly at 9:00 the procession will enter the back of the banquet hall. Faculty and staff who are robed will proceed down the center aisle and will sit on risers behind the stage party. The left column will use the left stairs; the right column will use the right stairs to get onto the stage. The ceremony is expected to last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. For the recessional, exit from your row to the nearest stairs and down the center aisle. A reception will follow the ceremony.
Please respond by March 21, 2017 so that we can plan for the number of seats to be placed on the platform.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone Izola White at X4286 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
