UHP 11th Annual Convocation
On September 19, 2013, the UHP held its Eleventh Annual Fall Convocation at Pollock Alumni House. UHP Director Dr. Larry Carlin, along with the UHSA President, Shane Conner, shared the latest Program updates as well as upcoming events and activities.
The well-attended event brought together the largest number of new and returning Honors students, faculty, and staff to date.
Dr. Stephen Szydlik, Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department, was this year's keynote speaker. His talk wowed all those in attendance as he demonstrated how to decode our driver's license numbers and made us more aware of numerical patterns and mathematics in our everyday lives. He also set a positive tone for the new academic year by encouraging everyone to step off the beaten path--literally and figuratively--and to remain open to new experiences.
Thank you, Dr. Szydlik, for making this year's event a great success!
