Revenge of the Sixth

Dear Texas Woman’s Community,

I hope this message finds you well as we cross the hump of the workweek and slide into the end of finals week.

This week’s end would also usually kick off our spring commencement ceremonies in both the Kitty Magee Arena for Denton/Dallas and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion for Houston. Since we cannot yet gather en masse, I will look forward to the creative ways you build virtual watch parties with family and friends once the commencement website goes live on May 22nd. See further details on the registrar’s website, e.g., “Your diploma will be mailed to the address you provided on your application for graduation approximately 6-8 weeks after the graduation date.”

I want to thank many of you for the outpouring of Star Wars memes I have received since Monday. I can tell “the Force is strong” within the Texas Woman’s Community. While the debate looms large on Twitter as to whether the second most important day in Star Wars fandom should be the fifth or the sixth (as a pun on “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith”), in communities that celebrate Cinco de Mayo, the sixths have it as the fifth is already taken. #maximizethecelebrations

Good luck with the last day of final exams!

With a pioneering spirit,

Carine M. Feyten, Ph.D.
Chancellor and President
