ATTENTION DECEMBER 2008 GRADUATING STUDENTS,
The Student Affairs Office is now accepting student Commencement Speaker nominations from members of the Graduating Class of December 2008. You must be a December 2008 graduating student to participate. You may nominate a classmate or yourself. When making your nomination decision, please consider a person that would best represent the entire student body of the Institute rather than a particular graduate school or degree program. Please refer to the schedule of important deadlines below:
STUDENT COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER PROCESS AND DEADLINES
Continue to check the Graduating Students Conference on First Class for updates and additional information related to Commencement.
Commencement Speaker nominations are due in Student Affairs Wednesday, October 29th, at 5 pm. You can either email your nomination to: “Student Affairs” in First Class or stop by the Student Affairs Office and submit your nomination to me (Shawna Routh).
All nominees who accept their nomination will present a 3-5 minute summary of their Commencement speech to fellow graduates at the Graduating Students Meeting on Thursday, November 6th, at 12:15pm in MG102. The Graduating Students Meeting is very important because we will cover important information about Commencement day logistics, graduation announcements, required paperwork needed for clearance, diplomas and more!
The meeting begins at 12:15pm and will conclude at 2:00pm. The speakers will present at some point during the meeting (times to be determined).
…and we will be streaming live on the web as well as video taping this meeting!
Commencement Speaker Elections will take place in the Student Affairs Office from Thursday, November 6th at 2pm through Friday, November 14th at 4:00pm.
The Student Commencement Speaker will be announced at the Happy Hour on November 14th at 5:30pm. The winner will also be announced via FirstClass Conferences as well.
Speaker will rehearse their speech with Ashley Arrocha to get timing and pacing perfected.
If you should have any questions, please contact any of us here in the Student Affairs Office.
