IN MEMORIAM: Walter Robinson and Robbin Thorp

This post was originally published on this site

The campus community is invited to a memorial for Walter Robinson, Tuesday, Oct. 8, in The Pavilion at the ARC at the Activities and Recreation Center.

The retired associate vice chancellor of Enrollment Management died June 9. Because it was late in the academic year, as finals and commencement approached, his friends and colleagues decided to delay the memorial until the fall.

Light refreshments will be served at 1:30 p.m., and the program will begin at 2 and last approximately two hours. Please RSVP here.
