On behalf of the Senior Speaker Selection Committee, I am happy to announce that Lizzie Shackney will be the senior speaker at the 2017 Commencement. Thank you to all of the amazing applicants who submitted excellent essays and made this decision a very hard one for the Committee. Please join me in congratulating Lizzie and thanking the committee members, especially the Senior Class Officers, for their great work.
Check your email for the “INVITATION” email. There is a link in the email to record your name so that it is pronounced correctly when read during the Commencement ceremony.
The Registrar’s Office has asked me to remind you that when you click on the link in your portfolio (Enrollment Status>Diploma Name) to confirm the name that will be on your diploma, it must be your LEGAL name, not your preferred name.
The last day to withdraw from a full-semester or fourth-quarter course is Wednesday, May 3. If you are planning on withdrawing from a course, make sure that you do not need it for your major or to reach 32.00 credits with no oversubscription. The last day of classes is in three weeks–Wednesday, May 10!!
If you have any questions or concerns or if I can be of any help as you approach the end of the semester, please do not hesitate to contact me, come by for drop-in, or call x2758 to schedule an appointment.
Best, Dean Brown
