Information about our Fall Convocation ceremony will be updated early in the fall semester.
Each semester, the Honors Program celebrates its graduating seniors with the Honors Program Convocation. At this special event, students are individually recognized for their contributions to the Honors Program and to EKU and are presented with their maroon mortarboard by their Honors Thesis mentor. This spring's Honors Program Convocation will take place Wednesday, May 10, 2017. A reception with light appetizers will begin at 6:00 pm, and the ceremony itself will begin at 7:00 pm. Students and mentors, please arrive no later than 6:45 pm. Please see below for information regarding this year's event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (859) 622-2924 with any questions not answered here.
RSVPs for Spring Convocation are due no later than Monday, April 24. Students, please RSVP for you and your guests using the Google Form that was sent to your email. Mentors, you may communicate with your students and they may RSVP on your behalf, or you may simply email Katie Patton at email@example.com.
Location and Parking Information
Spring Convocation will be held in the ballroom of the Keen Johnson Building, located in the heart of EKU's campus. An accessible entrance is available on the alley between the Keen Johnson Building and the Crabbe Library, off of University Drive.
If you wish to park in a handicap parking space, you must visit the EKU Parking Office, located in Commonwealth Hall, with your state-issued handicap parking tag. The handicap spaces on EKU's campus require an EKU tag, which you can obtain at Commonwealth Hall.
If a student with an EKU parking permit is driving to Convocation, all EKU parking restrictions apply (i.e., do not park in an employee space/lot).
What should I wear to Convocation?
Convocation is a semi-formal event (i.e. men-coat and tie/similarly dressy; women-skirt/dress/nice slacks). We will not be wearing graduation gowns for Convocation, and mentors are not to wear regalia for this event.
What if I can't attend Convocation?
We hope that you will be able to join us, but we understand if you are unable to attend. Please watch your email for an announcement from the Honors Program office indicating when you can come by the Honors office to pick up your maroon mortarboard, which will likely be in the last two weeks of the semester.
