A college calendar is filled with regular dates for doing things. Registration, convocation, president’s day, advisement day, winter break, exams, commencement all make college life a relatively tidy affair. Even social events roll out on a regular timeline, soccer season, Rose Rock. You get it.

Which is just one of the reasons a presidential inauguration, which can be scheduled at any time, is a unique event. It can range from full-out season of events to not much at all, depending how the new president envisions his or her priorities and frankly, how well things are going on campus.
