Convocation TOMORROW!

Join us as we come together as a community to start the new school year.

If you are a new student:

Please report to the southern gate of the Mansion's courtyard by 2:20pm on Tuesday. Audrey Ames will be there to help you form a line. The Convocation begins when we lead you into the courtyard to seats that have been designated for you.

If you are a returning student:

Please come directly into the courtyard and sit or stand in the open areas. The Convocation will begin when our new students---your new collegemates---enter the courtyard together.

With music, a few words, and a little food, we'll officially open the new academic year.
