The University’s annual Founders’ Day celebration will take place on Tuesday, April 12. Student presentations will be held in place of regularly scheduled classes, and all students and faculty are encouraged take part in the day’s events, featuring senior presentations, undergraduate research, panel discussions, recitals, and more. Classes scheduled to begin after 4 p.m. will be held as usual.
Founders’ Day was first celebrated at the University in 1902, when University founder Most Rev. Alexander Christie visited the school he had established on The Bluff the summer before. Christie’s annual visits were eagerly anticipated by the University’s college and preparatory students until his death in 1925.
