President Mortensen’s inauguration, originally scheduled for Oct. 10, has been postponed to Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020, at 1:30 p.m.
This change will allow us to celebrate our new president on Founders Day, a date with great historical significance for Weber State.
All other homecoming activities originally scheduled for the week of Oct. 5-12 will be held as planned, including the Mount Ogden Hike with Brad, as well as the WSU Service Day of Remembrance. We hope you’ll take part in these great events and traditions.
Please save the date of Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. on your calendars, and watch for details to follow.
