Campus Celebrates First-Year Convocation, August 24

Posted: August 22, 2018

The Buffalo State community will usher in a new academic year and welcome the Class of 2022 during First-Year Convocation, Friday, August 24, at 9:00 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall.

All members of the Buffalo State community are encouraged to attend.

Convocation, from the Latin words meaning “to call together,” has been used to describe a ceremonial assembly of members of a college since the fifteenth century. At Buffalo State, the annual event provides first-year students with the opportunity to hear from administrators and an inspirational young alumnus (Sheldon Anderson, '17) as well as to meet fellow classmates and faculty.

President Katherine Conway-Turner, Provost Melanie Perreault, and Vice President for Students Affairs Timothy Gordon, along with the academic deans will welcome new students to the beginning of their college journey.

“First-Year Convocation has become a Buffalo State tradition that gives our newest students an opportunity to be officially introduced and welcomed into the campus academic community," said Leasa Rochester-Mills, coordinator for New Student Academic Programs. "From that moment on, they embrace Buffalo State as their alma mater.”

A short video presentation will provide the audience with a glimpse of what the campus holds for them. This fall, more than 1,700 first-time students will be enrolled at Buffalo State.
