Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Monday morning.
Welcome to the last week of the Fall 2020 Quarter. Good luck with your final exams and projects; I know you’ve prepared to do well. Our first Winter Quarter Purge will be this Friday, so remember to secure your course schedule for next quarter through BOSS this week.
This coming weekend, we will hold commencement ceremonies for our fall graduates and celebrations for our spring and summer graduates. Like our sister ULS institutions, we are working diligently to provide recognition for our graduates while helping their friends and family stay safe and healthy. Through four individual ceremonies, we will honor our graduates’ hard work and achievements.
In order to maintain appropriate physical distancing within the Thomas Assembly Center, the ceremonies will be held as follows:
- Friday, Nov. 20, 6:30 p.m. – College of Business and College of Engineering and Science (Fall)
- Saturday, Nov. 21, 10 a.m. – College of Applied and Natural Sciences, College of Education, and College of Liberal Arts (Fall)
- Sunday, Nov. 22, 12:30 p.m. – College of Applied and Natural Sciences, College of Education, and College of Liberal Arts (Spring and Summer)
- Sunday, Nov. 22, 3 p.m. – College of Business and College of Engineering and Science (Spring and Summer)
In order to participate, each graduate was required to RSVP. Those who have responded have received six tickets for family and friends. No one will be admitted to the Thomas Assembly Center without a ticket, and our occupancy for the event will be well below state mandates.
Masks and physical distancing within the TAC will be required as well.
For those who do not have tickets, we will also livestream each of these ceremonies on our Facebook page.
Virtual film screening
This past summer I had the pleasure of watching Breakthrough, a documentary about Dr. Jim Allison, recipient of the 2018 the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his discovery of the immune system’s role in defeating cancer.
Dr. Allison’s love of life was an important driver of his passion for saving lives through his research, and his personal story and dedication to the research that has already saved thousands of lives was one of the most impactful films I have seen.
Now we all have a great opportunity to learn more about an amazing scientist and his life-saving discoveries. Tri Beta, a biological honor society with a chapter at Louisiana Tech, is sponsoring a special viewing of this film.
For more information on the film and special viewing opportunity, which is available through Nov. 30, visit the virtual screening information page online. You do not have to be a member of Tri Beta to view the film. I strongly encourage you to watch and be inspired!
Thank you for all your hard work this quarter. Continue to wear your masks and practice appropriate physical distancing, and keep pushing throughout this last week!
