The Randolph College community will celebrate the official opening of the new academic year with Convocation on Wednesday, August 30, at 4:15 p.m. in Smith Hall Theatre.
The annual event will be the first opportunity for seniors to partake in a much-loved tradition, marching in their graduation robes with stoles decked out with buttons collected over their four years of College. Students also typically wear funny hats. 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 Tetiana Poliakova ’18, 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: awards, convocation, events, traditions
