The UHP's Fall Convocation is an annual gathering of new and returning Honors students, faculty, and staff at the historic Pollock Alumni House. This informal celebration of each new academic year is also an opportunity to showcase the latest Program news, upcoming events, a special keynote speaker, and a catered reception.
UHP 11th Annual Convocation
On September 19th, 2013, the UHP held its 11th annual Fall Convocation in Pollock Alumni House. The UHP's Director, Dr. Larry Carlin, along with the UHSA President, Shane Conner, shared the latest Program updates as well as exciting upcoming events and activities. The event was incredibly well attended, bringing together the largest number of new and returning Honors students, faculty, and staff to date.
Dr. Stephen Szydlik from the Mathematics Department was this year's keynote speaker. His talk wowed all those in attendance as he showed them how to decode their drivers license numbers and made them think of the hidden role of patterns and math in their every-day lives. He also inspired everyone to set a positive tone for the new academic year by stepping off the beaten path and remaining open to new experiences.
Thank you, Dr. Szydlik, for making this year's event such a great success!
