Many of you already know that the 2009-2010 Victor Hurst convocation has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. The processional route has been determined and a rehearsal for marshals and banner bearers will be scheduled in mid-August. All University employees are encouraged to participate in the processional.

The procession will begin from Sikes, Brackett, and Tillman Halls at 8:30. The many participants starting from these points will proceed through the Carillon garden and on down the walkway to the right of Martin Hall. They will continue on past the reflection pool through the library breezeway (remaining on the sidewalk) to the Brooks Center. The remaining participants will join the procession at the Library plaza. The processional will enter the Brooks Center from the covered walkway at the main auditorium entrance.
