Honors Convocation 2016
Each year, Iona celebrates the academic achievements of our most outstanding students during the Honors Convocation. This year, the Honors Convocation will take place on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 2:00 pm in the Hynes Athletics Center (East). All graduating seniors who are members of honor societies will be recognized during the ceremony. Honor Society members who graduate early in 2016, prior to May, will also be invited to attend. All graduating seniors who have been selected by their major departments for academic awards will receive their medals during the ceremony. Honorees may invite family members and loved ones to the Convocation as well as the reception following.
It is expected that all honorees will attend the ceremony to be recognized and/or receive their medals. If you will be unable to attend, please contact Ms. Imelda Reece, Convocation Coordinator at (914) 633-2603.
