“Celebrating the Present, Preparing for the Future” is the title of Mason’s fall 2007 convocation, set for today at 3 p.m. in Dewberry Hall of the Johnson Center.

This annual event is open to the entire campus community and will be simulcast to Arlington Campus, Original Building, Room 250, and the Prince William Campus, Occoquan Building, Room 221.

Refreshments will be served outside Dewberry Hall immediately following the convocation.

President Alan Merten will lead a presentation on Mason’s safety procedures and the workings of the university’s crisis/emergency team. Two significant anniversaries in Mason’s history will be recognized: the 50th anniversary marking when Mason was first created as a satellite campus of the University of Virginia and the 35th anniversary marking when the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia declared Mason an independent university.
