What is New Student Convocation?
New Student Convocation is the official welcoming ceremony of new students to the college community by the president, administration, faculty and staff. It is designed as an opportunity to convey to students the importance of their educational endeavor and the commitment of the university to support them in the achievement of this goal - both inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to formally introducing the students to their collegiate career, the New Student Convocation will give students a sense of the size, strength and identity of their class.
Why should you attend?
All new students are encouraged to attend New Student Convocation. It is an opportunity for students to develop a true connection to the college community and an opportunity to connect with their future graduation class.
For parents, it provides an opportunity to share in an important transition in the lives of their sons or daughters.
