With gratitude to God for the new academic year, please join President Michael K. Le Roy and the Calvin community in celebrating Opening Convocation 2019.
First year and transfer students will enter the Convocation ceremony with their orientation groups. Faculty (in academic regalia) will process in by department.
Families are welcome, and dress is casual. All faculty, staff, emeriti, parents and upperclass students will sit in the lower level surrounding the first-year students, who will be seated on the main floor of the arena.
President Le Roy will give the Convocation address, “The Next Chapter.” All new students will receive a commemorative coin as part of a matriculation ceremony.
An all-campus cookout will be held on the Commons Lawn following Convocation. (Rain locations: Commons Dining Hall and Knollcrest Dining Hall.) Free for all family members. Families say farewell at 6:30 p.m. and students will leave to join their Quest groups for evening programming.
