Call for Volunteers: New Student Convocation - August 24
I am excited that we will have a chance to welcome our new students to campus in just a few short weeks. The Academic and Student Affairs teams have been planning for all sorts of welcome events, one of which is the First-Year Student Convocation on Friday, August 24.
First-Year Student Convocation will be held at 9:00 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall as part of Orientation 102. This event officially introduces and welcomes our newest students to the campus community. As this event requires the participation of our campus community to succeed, I encourage everyone to find a way to take part and offer support to welcome our new students. You can participate in this event as a work assignment for that morning by marching in the Convocation processional (faculty, librarians, and professional staff) or by volunteering to assist with directing students to events, as well as in many other ways. Faculty, librarians, and professional staff members planning to process should plan to wear academic regalia. Please register online by Wednesday, August 15, if you are available to march or volunteer for the event.
