New Student Convocation Is Sunday

The College will officially welcome new students to the Keene State community on Sunday, August 24. Faculty and staff who would like to participate in the New Student Convocation should be at the Appian Way Gateway at 1 p.m. This year faculty and staff are asked to wear regalia, if possible (if not, please wear business-casual attire). Upon arrival, faculty and staff will be asked to line up along Appian Way to Spaulding Gym.

Around 1:15 p.m. students will pass through the Main Street Gateway onto the campus, a symbolic part of the program where new students literally step into the KSC community. Faculty and staff will add to the symbolism by “clapping in” the students as they begin their walk to the gym. When all the students have walked down Appian Way, faculty and staff will enter through the side doors of the gym that face the Student Center. The program will run from 1:30-2:15 p.m. There are no activities following the convocation. For more information, call Pauline Dionne at 8-2106.
