Calendar of Events
April – May 2013
Apr 13 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
When Sarah Tollie ’09, a graduate student at Middle Tennessee State University, marketing associate at the Birthplace of Country Music, and alumna of Virginia Intermont’s English – Literature & Creative Writing program, first set foot on VI’s campus, she couldn’t have imagined the world of possibilities the small, tight-knit school would bring to her. Now, eight years later, those possibilities continue to come her way – and she gives VI much of the credit. Join Sarah as she talks about VI’s instrumental role in her journey in “Bristol, the Birthplace, and Beyond: VI’s Lasting Impact” on Saturday, April 13, 2013, at 2:30 p.m. in VI’s Science Hall 201.
May 4 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Commencement Rehearsal is at 4:00 p.m. in Harrison-Jones Memorial Hall
May 5 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Immediately following Commencement ceremony, a reception will be held in the Smith-Cantor Gymnasium (Cobra Den). All guests, faculty and staff are invited to relax and celebrate with the graduates and their families.
Tickets of admission will be required for the 3:00 p.m. Commencement ceremony. Each graduate will be entitled to seven free tickets for seating in Harrison-Jones Memorial Hall. Students may pick up their Commencement tickets and request additional tickets from the Dean of Students Office prior to April 12, 2013.
As always, Commencement promises to be an exciting time on our campus to commemorate the important achievements of our graduates. We look forward to celebrating this special occasion with your family.
