New Student Convocation Welcomes Class of 2016

August 28, 2012

 

Curry College President Kenneth K. Quigley, Jr., alumna and keynote speaker Susan Griffin '80, and several other Curry community representatives welcomed the Class of 2016 during Curry's New Student Convocation on August 27, 2012.

To kick off the gorgeous late-August morning, faculty and staff lined the walkway to the Student Center to applaud the first-year class as they made their way down from North Campus and across Westhaver Park for the ceremony. Faculty members, adorned in their traditional academic regalia, then joined the processional filing into the Student Center gymnasium.

The Curry College Pure Vocals Club began the ceremony with a beautiful rendition of our national anthem followed by a welcome from President Quigley, who offered the new class some helpful words of wisdom.

"My best advice for your success comes down to two words, 'Get involved.'  It will make a tremendous difference.  You'll succeed more, you'll contribute more, you'll learn and develop more and experience more.  Also, you'll have a lot more fun."

Student Government Association (SGA) President and biology major Corey Theodore (Class of 2014) spoke about the importance of students taking advantage of the opportunities presented to them at Curry.

"The activity is not what matters, just try something new.  There's no better way of learning about yourself.  Add a purpose to your time here...Whatever it is that moves you, that gets you excited, go for it.  It's what makes you, you."

 

Faculty speaker Dr. Carrie Cokely, Associate Professor and Director of First-Year Studies, echoed the day's theme of involvement, calling on the Class of 2016 to use their time at Curry wisely.

"Each of you is talented in some way and is here because we believe that you can be successful as a Curry College student. Throughout your time here use your talents to make a positive contribution to our community.  Join a club or organization where you can use and expand upon your talents.  Offer your insights and opinions both in and outside the class.  And find ways, both big and small, to make a difference at Curry and in the world around you."

Griffin, the Assignment Editor at WCVB-TV, then reminisced about her early college days, initially dreaming of becoming an elementary school teacher.  That was until she decided to get involved at Curry's radio station (WMLN-FM), changing her career path for the next 30 years.

"(The General Manager) encouraged me to join the WMLN staff and invited me to anchor afternoon newscasts.  His invitation appealed to me, I was seeking ways to fill my time between classes and wanted to be involved in something new.  I took a chance and became an afternoon news anchor, and I never looked back."

 

Following the keynote speech, Chief Academic Officer David Potash officially matriculated the members of the Class of 2016, who then stood proudly while junior Garrett Goodman, Student Representative of the Alexander Graham Bell Honor Society, led the recitation of the Curry Class Oath.

The parting recessional spilled out of the Student Center into the sun-filled amphitheater, where community members gathered for refreshments and conversation before the start of the first day of classes.

Sally Buckley, Assistant Dean of Enrollment Management and Registration, once again helped spearhead the New Student Convocation event.

"In its fourth year, Curry's New Student Convocation is well on its way to becoming an annual tradition. The event provides a wonderful opportunity  to welcome our new students to campus and to encourage them to become involved as members of our caring college community. Curry offers so many great opportunities for students to become involved both in and out of class that there really is something for everyone.

"I hope that students will act on the advice of the Convocation speakers and find their own special way to participate. Doing so not only enhances their own college experience, it also contributes to making our college even better. Best wishes to the Class of 2016! I'm looking forward to celebrating their many successes over the next four years and beyond."
