New Student Convocation
August 27, 2012
Student Center Gymnasium
Curry College celebrates the start of each academic year with a Convocation ceremony to recognize entering students as new members of the college.
The celebration begins with new students processing from the residence halls to the Student Center, where they are greeted by faculty who may adorn full academic regalia. During the ceremony, new students participate in the class oath and receive the official Class of 2016 pin.
Student, faculty and campus leaders as well as an alumnus offer words of welcome and encouragement to the entering class. Following the convocation ceremony, new students gather outside the Student Center for refreshments with faculty, student leaders, and convocation staff.
The procession will begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by the Convocation ceremony in the Student Center Gymnasium. A reception will take place after the ceremony in Westhaver Park (front of Student Center).
