Black and Gold Convocation

Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

Black and Gold Convocation will take place on Monday, August 21st at 10:00 AM in Holmes Convocation Center. This will be “One Amazing Day” as we experience a once in a life time event, a solar eclipse, and kick off the academic year with our opening convocation, highlighted by remarks from Chitra Divakaruni, author of this year’s Common Reading book One Amazing Thing. Please make plans to participate in as many of the day’s events as possible and welcome our new students as well those that are returning.

Here are a few details that will help you prepare for and enjoy the day:

  • As stated above, Black and Gold Convocation will begin at 10:00AM, not 10:30 as advertised earlier. Those faculty who wish to process in are asked to be in room 13A by 9:30AM to assemble and enjoy refreshments. Faculty will be seated together on the arena floor. The event will not be live streamed.
  • Faculty are encouraged to attend in regalia. For those that need regalia, the bookstore has agreed to extend the deadline to order rental regalia, available at no cost to you, until Monday, July 31st. Please email jacksonll [at] appstate [dot] edu with the following information;
