URCM took a tour of Apogee today in preparation for fall commencement. UNT is trying a whole new thing this year, holding a massive event at the football stadium for all graduates. There will be music, food, and Greg Abbott guest speaking! Having the governor has proven to be a particularly controversial choice thus far. Everyone is sitting on pins and needles to see how the event goes when the show goes on next weekend.
As for the walkthrough, we got to see where the food will be, where the stages will be, and where we can and can’t go. Turns out it’s gonna basically be prohibited to get good face shots of students because of the positioning restrictions. Tricky tricky! It’ll be an interesting day for sure.
This morning we showed the president the proof of concept for the fall ad. It went about how I expected it to. Luckily we don’t have to change much, and he’s cool with the concept. What a load off! Less of a load off: KR was at the meeting this morning (in my office) AND at the Apogee tour. She left this afternoon with the flu. Assuming an incubation period of about a week, there’s gonna be a lot of sickies or recovering sickies at commencement.
