A BANNER IDEA

A slight chill isn't the only thing in the air around Slippery Rock University as banners heralding congratulations to William Behre on his upcoming investiture as the institution's 17th president were installed Oct. 24. SRU will spend 17 days, Nov. 1-17, celebrating the University and Behre's inauguration. The formal inauguration and investiture ceremony will be at 11 a.m., Nov. 9 in Morrow Field House. The campus community and public are invited. Behre was selected to lead the nearly 9,000-student University by Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education board of governors March 14 following a nationwide search. He assumed his presidential duties July 1. A complete list of the 17-days of celebration events can be found on the University's Presidential Inaugural web page at www.sru.edu/inauguration.
