Greater Faculty Participation Encouraged at Commencement

by Greta Petry (May 6, 2005)

President Kermit L. Hall is requesting full faculty turnout at Commencement Saturday, May 14, and Sunday, May 15.

Hall, who is this year's commencement speaker, said, "I ask that you be a part of the more than 200 volunteers we need in order to make the weekend run smoothly." Volunteer now by going to to sign up online.

Volunteers are needed for both the graduate commencement ceremony scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday at the Recreation and Convocation Center, and the undergraduate ceremony, which starts at 10 a.m. Sunday on the lawn of the Science Library.

Eight faculty volunteers in full regalia are needed to shake hands with students as they have their photos taken, just before the undergraduate ceremony. Call Linda Wheeler at (518) 442-5309 for details.
