I enjoyed the talk with William Abraham very much. He was both interesting and entertaining; I wish the event would have been a little longer. I would have enjoyed listening to him speak further. Unfortunately, I was not able to go to the later event. left a positive review November 1, 2018

Aside from the rain, I really enjoyed the Convocation ceremony. For me, the most impressive moments occurred with the faculty procession to the stage and the singing of the Alma Mater.

I thought it was great. Open to all faiths, very inclusive. Mark Shiner did a great mini-service in the 15 minutes he had. I'm a staff member so it felt awesome to me to be able to attend an event like this at my place of employment. This is my 3rd or 4th year attending.
