Academic Year Opening Mass and Picnic


Author: Susan Good

President Jenkins invites all to join him in celebrating the new academic year at the Opening Mass and Picnic on Tuesday, August 23, 2011. This traditional gathering is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and their families to formally usher in the year and to welcome new members of our community to campus.

The Mass begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Joyce Center’s Purcell Pavilion; a procession of faculty and student leaders precedes the Mass, beginning at 5:20 p.m.

A picnic buffet will immediately follow on DeBartolo Quad and will include music and entertainment.
