Welcoming Our Newest Class
Opening Convocation marks the first time our newest students come together as a class.
In the afternoon on Move-In Day, students and their families are invited to attend the ceremony, in which the faculty marshal also officially opens the new academic year.
The president, provost and member of the university's Board of Trustees welcome the new students.
Students and alumni alike step it up each April with volunteer service for the benefit of food pantries, senior centers, animal shelters, and dozens of other organizations near campus and regions beyond.
