As the new academic year begins, I hope you will make plans to join the entire University community for the MavsMeet Convocation. This is our eighth annual new student convocation, and it promises to be our best yet.
I urge you to join us at 4 p.m. this Wednesday, Aug. 22, in College Park Center.
Our featured speaker this year is Dr. David Silva, vice provost for academic affairs and professor of linguistics in the College of Liberal Arts. Dr. Pamela Jansma, dean of the College of Science, will serve as emcee.
Immediately following MavsMeet, please join the platform party for a faculty and staff reception in the Hospitality Suite at College Park Center. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
Join the festivities, help get our students off on the right foot, and start the new academic year in grand style. I hope you’ll be able to make it.
