The 2015 Convocation ceremony will be a joint celebration with the departments of Art History and Art Conservation. Our Keynote speaker is none other than our own Dr. Joyce Hill Stoner. The special ceremony will be held in the Museum Galleries in Old College at 2 PM on Friday May 29th, 2015. Maddie Cooper will deliver the Art Conservation speech this year.
Weather permitting, please meet outside Old College on the steps at 1:30 on Friday May 29th for a class photograph in our caps and gowns. At 1:45, please congregate at the big table on first floor where we will begin our formal procession into the Gallery. Personal belongings should be left with a guest. Guests will be seated in the gallery space and we hope that it will be big enough to accommodate everyone. This is a new venue for us.
There is a reception after the ceremony in the lobby.
Parking information: There are a limited number of metered parking spaces behind Old College. When these fill up, the closest parking is at the Trabant Garage across Main Street from Old College. Visit the University of Delaware's Parking & Transportation Services website for further locations.
Also, we will meet between 7 and 7:30 am for the University-wide Commencement ceremony on Saturday May 30th at the Big Bob on the football field. General seating for guests is available on a first-come, first-served basis; the gates open at 7 am. The procession into the stadium will start at 8:20 am and the ceremony will begin at 9 am.
