Graduate School Convocation and Picnic

Time: 4:00 pm - 6:00 PM

Faculty, Students, and Staff,

You are invited to the Graduate School Convocation and Picnic on Friday, August 17, 2018. The Convocation will be held at 4 p.m. in LEC 3.102B (by Starbucks) followed by the Annual GSBS Picnic at 5 p.m in the courtyard.

Our very own alumnus Jeffrey Klinger, Ph.D., will deliver the Convocation Address this year. Dr. Klinger received his Ph.D. from our Microbiology Department in 1978 and initially went into academia and was a faculty member at Case Western Reserve University. He later transitioned to industry where he served in leadership roles at a variety of companies including Vice-President of R&D at Genzyme from 2002-2008. During the ceremony, we will announce winners of the Armand J. Guarino Awards for Excellence in Doctoral and Master’s Studies.

Following Dr. Klinger’s talk and presentation of awards, we hope that you will join us at the picnic for some awesome burgers and fries catered by Cheesy Jane’s food truck, paletas and great music!

Please complete the attached RSVP to reserve your food wristband by Friday, August 3rd.
