Opening Convocation will be Tuesday, Sept 6 at 10:15 a.m. in Neumann Auditorium followed by an all-campus picnic in the Mensa and Saemann Student Center Ballrooms. 

Faculty will assemble in academic garb in the first floor hallway of Luther Hall at 10 a.m. Faculty will form two double lines starting in the auditorium and out the east doors of the Neumann lobby. 

The new students will process through the faculty lines to a reserved seating section in the front of the auditorium. The faculty will then take their seats in the rear center section on the main floor of the auditorium. 

Please follow the directions of the college marshals, Dr. Ann Henninger and Dr. Todd Reiher. 

There will be a formal recessional for the platform party and faculty at the end of the program. This will enable those of you who are meeting with students during the lunch to move through the lunch lines and proceed to your designated table in the ballrooms. Look for directional signs.
