Dear Friends of the College,
Welcome to the May 2011 e-newsletter for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Inside A&S.
The spring 2011 semester is quickly drawing to a close. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you do to advance the mission of the College and to contribute to our vibrant community.
The University will celebrate the achievements of our graduating seniors during Commencement Weekend, which takes place May 13-15. For the complete schedule of events for the weekend, please click here. At this Web site, you'll find all the information you need to prepare for Commencement.
Kicking off Commencement Weekend activities is the College's annual Recognition Ceremony for Undergraduate Students, which takes place on Friday, May 13, at 4 p.m., in the Pavilion. Faculty are asked to assemble in the Pavilion at 3:30 p.m. to facilitate movement of the large crowds expected.
In addition, the College will celebrate the accomplishments of its graduating mast er's-level students at the A&S Recognition Ceremony for Graduate Students, which takes place outdoors on Mendel Field on Saturday, May 14, at 2 p.m.
Both events promise to be memorable ones. Our soon-to-be graduates have worked hard and now are poised to celebrate an important milestone in their lives, and here in the College, we celebrate along with them, their parents, families, and friends. The accomplishments of our graduates become our own in profound and meaningful ways, and we are proud and humbled to have played a part of our students' Villanova experiences.
Thank you for continuing to read Inside A&S. I wish you a restful and enjoyable summer.
