Freshman Convocation on Sunday, August 28, in Fisher Auditorium

The 2011 Freshman Convocation is set to be another engaging welcome for students entering the IUP community. The ceremony begins at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 28, as the platform party processes into Fisher Auditorium.

To help set the academic tone for IUP, members of the platform party will be donning their academic robes and recognizing those faculty members who have been honored with the title University Professor. 2011–2012 University Professor Lynn Botehlo will serve as master of ceremonies for the event. In addition to a formal welcome from IUP Interim President David Werner, IUP student-trustee Andrew Longacre adds welcome on behalf of the student body. IUP Music Professor Jack Stamp will deliver the keynote address.

The event will be followed by a cookout in the Oak Grove hosted by the IUP Ambassadors. Music will be provided by IUP alumnus DJ Beatstreet Josh Aguire. Norm and the IUP cheerleaders will also attend the cookout to provide an additional boost of IUP spirit.

Join them all to inaugurate the 2011–2012 academic year.
