Convocation 2015: “Festina Lente”

September 13, 2015

Convocation is an essential part of welcoming a new academic year. Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to hear from our provost, Dr. Madison U. Sowell, as he spoke about the importance and application of “festina lente,” a Latin phrase meaning “make haste slowly.” It was an enlightening and encouraging reminder for everyone at the beginning of a new and promising year. Following the address, the professors, decked out in their academic regalia, greeted students as they exited the Stoddard Center.
