Each semester, the Honors Program celebrates its graduating seniors with the Honors Scholar 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. 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 Fall Convocation are due November 28, 2017. 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.
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. For more information, click here.
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).
Other guests should park in the Lancaster Lot located off Lancaster Avenue. For more information and maps, click here.
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.
