The fall 2013 semester’s Opening Mass will be held in the Chiles Center on Saturday, August 24, at 4:30 p.m., and faculty will process in regalia. Faculty who plan to process and need regalia are asked to e-mail Billy McWood, university events, at firstname.lastname@example.org with name, degree, the name of the institution that awarded the degree, and height and weight. McWood must place the order with Jostens no later than July 12. Faculty members’ deans will decide if faculty are responsible for payment or if their departments will pay for the rental.
Faculty robing for the Mass will be in the north lobby of the Chiles Center; those processing should arrive no later than 4 p.m. to prepare for the procession, which will begin at 4:15 p.m. A representative from Jostens will be available to assist and answer any questions with regard to regalia.
