Join the New Student Convocation welcome crew!

New Student Convocation Welcome Crew - join us!

This year we are excited to announce that New Student Convocation will be held in-person in the Carver Gym, hosted by Academic Affairs and Enrollment & Student Services. We will continue the tradition of faculty and staff joining the celebration by forming a Welcome Crew to clap and cheer for our new-to-campus students. One of the most extraordinary moments of New Student Convocation is when the students walk out of the ceremony to be surprised and greeted with the cheers of their Western community.  We are looking for current students, staff, alumni, and faculty to join us in welcoming our newest members.  Can you help us?

For those who do not know, Student Convocation is a chance for our incoming and new-to-campus students to come together, have an official welcome to campus, interact with their peers and those of us that work at Western, and have a special beginning to their collegiate careers.
