“I love that Curry has a shuttle to Boston. It's so convenient and it's a quick trip. Even on weekends we can go to places like Fenway Park and Faneuil Hall. It's awesome!”

New Student Academic Convocation 2013
September 3, 2013
Curry College celebrates the start of each academic year with an Academic 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 2017 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 Academic Convocation ceremony in the Student Center Gymnasium. A reception will take place after the ceremony in Westhaver Park (front of Student Center).
