2011 Freshman Convocation: Come Early and Stay Late

The 2011 Freshman Convocation will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 28, in Fisher Auditorium.

Members of the IUP community are encouraged to come early, as seating inside Fisher Auditorium will be limited. However, no attendees will miss Dr. Stamp's keynote address to the Class of 2015. Convocation proceedings will be broadcast into the Oak Grove so everyone will be able to hear the speakers and music.

Dr. Lynn Botelho will continue the tradition of hosting Freshman Convocation in her role as University Professor. In addition, eight previous university professors will also be in attendance as special guests of the platform party. Interim President Dr. David Werner and IUP Student Trustee Andrew Longacre will welcome the Class of 2015. Keynote address will come from IUP Music Professor Dr. Jack Stamp. Also an IUP University Professor in 2008–2009, Dr. Stamp has been honored as an IUP Distinguished Alumni and as a recipient of the Distinguished Faculty Award for Creative Arts.

Convocation guests are invited to stay and enjoy the cookout hosted by the IUP Ambassadors immediately following the ceremony. In addition to great food, IUP alumnus Josh Aguirre—DJ Beatstreet—will provide great music.

Please join this community welcome to our new students.
