Depending on your program, Academic Recognition Ceremonies (ARCs) can include honor society inductions, awards for high achieving students or popular faculty, or recognition of professional accomplishments outside of the classroom. The ARCs will take place Thursday afternoon, students are strongly encouraged to attend as well as family and guests.
