Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Monday morning.
This weekend at Louisiana Tech was full of student activities and celebrations. Our LA Tech teams took the baseball and softball fields, marking the two-year anniversary of the 2019 tornado, and our football team held its annual spring game. Saturday evening was capped off with our annual Spring Fling, where hundreds of our students gathered to celebrate nearing the end of our academic year.
One of the most meaningful events for me was our First-Year Finale for our freshmen students. We were unable to have our annual Freshman Convocation in Fall 2020 because of COVID-19 restrictions, so our Division of Student Advancement planned a special spring event. The convocation is always a time to share Louisiana Tech’s unique culture – our tenets and traditions – with our incoming students.
As in the fall, our students were joined by faculty, staff, alumni, and current students. They heard stories and were welcomed into the Tech Family as they deposited their tenet medallions into the Lady of the Mist fountain. I enjoyed connecting with many of our freshmen in the Quad.
Our culture makes Louisiana Tech a special place, and I know these students have a greater appreciation for our University after Saturday night’s celebration. Thank you all for making this academic year possible and successful. Facing the challenges we have has brought us all closer together, and I appreciate the work of each of you to ensure that the members of our Tech Family have stayed safe and continued their academic endeavors.
Spring 2021 ANS and Education graduation opportunity
In planning commencement ceremonies that comply with our state’s gathering limits, and in our efforts to accommodate larger numbers of guests, we needed to schedule five separate ceremonies:
- 9 a.m. May 22 ‐ College of Engineering and Science
- 12:30 p.m. May 22 ‐ College of Liberal Arts
- 4 p.m. May 22 ‐ College of Business
- TBD* May 23 ‐ College of Applied and Natural Sciences
- TBD* May 23 ‐ College of Education
We heard from several ANS and Education graduates who needed to participate in Saturday ceremonies, and we were able to accommodate a limited number of graduates in our Saturday events.
If you need to participate in the graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 22, instead of the ceremony on Sunday, May 23, you must complete the registration link at https://forms.office.com/r/v2FCVnXPP4.
