New Students Welcomed with Convocation

Approximately 2,000 freshmen students were welcomed into their academic career at UNCW with the annual Convocation celebration on Aug. 22.

First gathering on the Campus Commons in the shadow of the Clock Tower, the Class of 2015 proceeded from Chancellor's Walk to the Clock Tower for the unveiling of the class banner. Following the Trek To Trask (Coliseum), students were greeted with comments by Provost Cathy Barlow and Chancellor Gary Miller and a full address by John Fischetti, professor in the Watson School of Education. A welcome picnic with faculty and staff followed on the lawn of Hoggard Hall.
