Honors Convocation

The College of Engineering holds an Honors Convocation each fall to honor students who have achieved excellence in undergraduate degree programs for the previous academic year.
The 2019 Honors Convocation will be on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Harvill Building. This event not only celebrates the hard work of students, but also serves to recognize the family and friends who support them. A reception will follow.

Eligible students will receive an email invitation. Hard copy invitations will go out to the student’s home address and are intended to be a memento of the occasion.

At this time, our ceremony venue’s full capacity has been reached and the RSVP system has closed in advance of the October 4, 2019 deadline. We apologize for any inconvenience. Should you like to be placed on a waitlist, please email Ariel Fisher at arielfisher@email.arizona.edu

We invite all eligible students and guests to attend our post-ceremony reception from 5:00 to 6:00 PM on the West Harvill Patio. Please RSVP by email with Ariel Fisher at arielfisher@email.arizona.edu.
