The P.I. Reed School of Journalism will host its own December Convocation ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2009, in the Mountainlair Ballrooms.

While the SOJ ceremony begins at 9:30 am, graduates are asked to arrive by 8:30 am for line-up. Please report to the registration table in front of the Mountaineer Room on the second floor of the Lair.

The SOJ’s December Convocation ceremony includes a processional of graduation candidates, keynote speaker and student awards. Graduation candidates are formally recognized and cross the stage to shake hands with their program chair and the dean. A WVU photographer will be on hand to take photos of each candidate crossing the stage. Photos can be ordered online after the event. A light reception follows the ceremony.

(Students and families should note that this event is in addition to the WVU December Convocation ceremony. Students are encouraged to attend both events.)
