Honors Convocation and University Picnic
I am writing you today about our annual Honors Convocation which will be held in Denton at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 16, 2015 in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, followed by the University Picnic in the Pioneer Circle.
Special awards will be presented to outstanding faculty, students, and staff for their dedication and contributions to Texas Woman’s University. In addition, this year’s Distinguished Alumni and Hallmark Alumni Award recipients will be introduced. Faculty, students, and staff from all TWU sites are invited to attend.
Faculty and academic administrators are encouraged to march in the procession and to wear academic regalia. Robing will take place in the Green Room, adjacent to the Margo Jones Performance Hall. Student members of honorary organizations are welcome to join the procession and to sit in the center section of the Hall – directly behind the faculty.
The line of march for the academic procession will form at 9:45 a.m. on the circular drive immediately in front of the Music Building and will move into the Margo Jones Performance Hall promptly at 10:00 a.m. Program participants, honorees, and others who will be seated on the stage will precede the academic procession into the Hall.
Classes on the Denton campus will be dismissed from 9:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Offices that can be closed during this period may post a notice indicating when they will reopen. Offices that cannot close should arrange for coverage during Convocation. If your offices are closed, I hope you will make every effort to attend and look forward to seeing you.
