Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Monday morning.
This Saturday, we welcomed about 300 prospective students whose parents are Tech graduates to campus for our Legacy Day. This year’s event was even more special for us because last year we were unable to welcome our alumni and their children because of COVID-19.
The day was full of exciting events and opportunities for these future Bulldogs to learn about Louisiana Tech. I appreciate the efforts of all our admissions staff, college and program representatives, and students. Your work sharing wonderful stories about our University will help us bring another outstanding freshman class to campus. It was great to see so many of our students there dressed in your Tech Blue, showing spirit and having a good time. Jim Robken also did his magic with the Tech Band, making the day even more special.
As we near the end of the spring quarter, thank you all for your work to bring Louisiana Tech’s campus to life after the long year fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. While we still need to continue working – wearing masks, washing our hands, and staying home when we’re sick – we continue to make strides in the fight against the virus.
Next weekend, we will be wrapping up the 2020-21 Academic Year with celebrations, ceremonies and commencement. We will be holding four commencement ceremonies for our spring graduates on May 22-23. As a reminder, the ceremony times are:
- Saturday, 9 a.m. – College of Engineering and Science
- Saturday, 12:30 p.m. – College of Liberal Arts
Saturday, 4 p.m. – College of Business and graduates with confirmation emails for this ceremony from the College of Applied and Natural Science and the College of Education
- Sunday, 1 p.m. – College of Applied and Natural Sciences and College of Education
Masks will be required for all individuals entering the Thomas Assembly Center for commencement, and graduates are asked to limit the number of guests they invite to the ceremony to no more than 15 individuals.
Family and friends who are unable to attend commencement can watch the events via Facebook Live. I look forward to congratulating all of our graduates in person this coming weekend.
Keep up your efforts to do well in your classes. Focus on your studies and, as your schedules allow, take breaks to enjoy special time with your friends. I hope to see you around campus.
