Last night was Convocation on campus. Different schools call it different things, but it’s basically reverse-Graduation. Still with the marching and the speeches, but this time the only robes and silly hats are on the faculty.
The theme is one of remarkable futures and growth, but with a warm and welcoming mood as a great incoming class makes its home on our campus.
Every Convocation is followed by a huge dinner in the Glade (a.k.a the grassy knoll outside the swimming pool). This year’s picnic followed a Mexican theme and the meal was delicious. Anecdotal evidence says college kids love churros!
