Seniors! Muggles!

Convocation is tomorrow, Tuesday, at Riverside Church. Please line up outside the Church at 3:30pm. WEAR YOUR Green T-SHIRTS, the ones you got for free at the Block Party, and bring your fantastic Barnard spirit.

Green is for Seniors!

Convocation is a time to celebrate the opening of the school year with your community -- your fellow students, your faculty, your deans, and alumnae. The featured speaker is Marcia Sells, a Barnard alumna and Dean of Students at Harvard Law School! This is the formal marking of the start of your final year -- and you won't see this much pomp and circumstance again until COMMENCEMENT!

If you don't have a green shirt, don't worry -- send your owl Hedwig or yourself over to the Student Life Office, 3rd Floor of the Diana, for a shirt, and there will be some on hand at Convocation. One per student.

I hope to see you all there!  Look for me to walk in with you -- I will be wearing my finest purple Ph.D. regalia (and I will be hard to miss in all that purple wool with the funny hat).
