REMINDER: Please complete the Honors College Graduation Declaration and Convocation Reservation if you have not already! This form is required whether or not you plan to attend the Honors College Convocation.
The Honors College Convocation will take place on Wednesday, December 7, (during final exam week) at 7:00 p.m. in the Illinois Room of Student Center East. We are excited to welcome the Dr. Mrinalini “Meena” Rao, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, as our keynote speaker.
Please let us know whether or not you will attend the Convocation by completing and submitting the Graduation Declaration to the Honors College as soon as possible. The form is available on our website at https://www.honors.uic.edu/convocation. On the form, you’re asked for information about your accomplishments and future plans – don’t be shy! Give us as much detailed information as possible. This gives us the opportunity to recognize these accomplishments during the convocation ceremony and to “brag” to the rest of the world about our outstanding Honors College students.
