The Randolph College community will celebrate the official opening of the new academic year with Convocation on Tuesday, August 30, at 4:30 p.m. in Smith Hall Theatre.
Convocation will feature time-honored traditions, including lively cheering and singing among the seniors and their sister class, the sophomores. It will be the first opportunity for seniors to march in their graduation robes and funny hats decked out with buttons. Convocation will conclude with the singing of the College song, after which students will assemble around the Sundial to sing more traditional tunes.
Speakers at Convocation include Eva Heitbrink ’17, president of Student Government, and Randolph College President Bradley W. Bateman. The College also will present awards to faculty and students to recognize their research, teaching, and academic accomplishments.Tags: Class of 2017, convocation, Eva Heitbrink '17, traditions
