Davenport campus commencement changes

Starting with the Oct. 23, 2015, commencement, the morning honors convocation will be eliminated. In its place will be a single commencement ceremony, starting at 11 a.m. in the Vickie Anne Palmer Hall auditorium. Some of the honors convocation awards will be presented during commencement, and others at the graduation banquet the night before.

With the anticipated conversion of the Gothic Room in Vickie Anne Palmer Hall into a new museum, Davenport campus officials reviewed how graduations are celebrated on the Port Orange and San Jose campuses (neither have a separate honors convocation). The decision was then made to move to a single commencement ceremony at 11 a.m.
