Bobcat Pause

Bobcat Pause is an annual event that honors members of the campus community who have recently passed away. The event is sponsored by Student Foundation and the Dean of Students Office. It occurs every spring. 

This year will mark the 27th Annual Bobcat Pause Memorial Service, which will take place in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 6:00 pm, with a reception preceding the ceremony starting at 5:15 pm. The ballroom will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the public to come view the memorials and to leave their condolences in the guestbook.

Bobcat Pause Guest Book

Student Foundation and the Dean of Students Office invites all students, faculty, staff, administration and guests to use the online guest book to submit tributes in honor of deceased loved ones. With your permission, these tributes will be posted on this website and may be used during Bobcat Pause Memorial services. Click here to view the guestbook tributes.
