SU Fall Convocation Moved to Maggs Physical Activities Center
|Fall Convocation scheduled for today Tuesday, September 6, has been moved to Maggs Physical Activities Center due to rain.|
The event was postponed from August 26 due to preparations for Hurricane Irene.
A celebration of the opening of the academic year, Convocation provides an opportunity to recognize the achievements of first-year students and to encourage all to reflect on the meaning of a college education. The colorful ceremony, for the campus community, includes faculty in academic regalia and traditionally serves as a welcome for new students.
This year’s guest speaker is author Jennifer Thompson, whose book, Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption, is the 2011 New Student Reader at SU.
