Chances are you’re already overwhelmed with readings though!

Welcome back to Barnard! Convocation takes place today at 4:30.

The email from Dean Natalie Friedman reads as follows:

Hello Students! Just a reminder that Convocation is tomorrow, 9/13, in Riverside Church. The proceedings begin at 4:30, and students should plan on arriving around 3:45. Your Class Deans will meet you outside of Riverside starting around 3:45. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

–Be sure to wear your class year t-shirt, picked up at this year’s Block Party, to Convocation. (If you did not pick-up a t-shirt at the Block Party, not to worry, we’ll have t-shirts available at Riverside Church when you arrive!)
–Please meet outside Riverside Church, located at 490 Riverside Drive, as early as 3:45pm (or 4:00pm if you’re coming from a class) where you’ll see your class dean outside the entrance. At 4:05pm, we’ll have classes enter the church. Please note that an accessible entrance to Riverside Church is located at 91 Claremont Avenue. Staff will guide you to Barnard Convocation in the Nave.
–The ceremony will last approximately one hour, and a reception will follow on the Barnard campus (Milbank Courtyard, rain location: Event Oval).

Please note that Barnard classes are cancelled from 4-6pm so that you may attend. Columbia classes are not cancelled. Some Barnard classes may also be meeting; you should make attending class a priority, whether at Barnard or Columbia. When in doubt, contact your instructor.

See you tomorrow!

Dean Friedman and Executive Director Lawrence
