Fall for Convocation, Family Weekend

Family Weekend

Family Weekend, held Oct. 26-28, begins with Fall Convocation, to be held Friday at 2 p.m. on the Lawn. Edward L. Ayers, new dean of Arts & Sciences, will be the keynote speaker.

Convocation honors undergraduate students for their academic excellence, awarding them Intermediate Honors for earning grade-point averages of 3.4 or higher during their first two years at U.Va.

The Thomas Jeafferson Award, given annually to a member of the University community who exemplifies in character and achievements the ideals of U.Va.’s founder, also will be presented.

Family Weekend includes the University Forum, a public address by President John T. Casteen III on the state of the University, followed by a question-and-answer session. The forum will take place Oct. 27 in Old Cabell Hall Auditorium from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

Family Weekend comprises a variety of events, from performances to faculty talks, with schools and departments hosting their own programs. For the complete schedule, see http://www.virginia.edu/familyweekend/
