On Monday, Sept. 6, Ohio University President Roderick J. McDavis, the executive staff and student leaders will take part in the annual tradition of welcoming the newest Bobcats at the First-Year Student Convocation.
The convocation brings together the approximately 4,000 students who will be entering OHIO in 2010 for a ceremony of welcome and university pride.
Faculty and staff are invited to attend the convocation to meet and welcome the newest members of the university's family.
Convocation day events include:
Representatives from more than 200 campus organizations will be on hand to speak to first-year students during the Student Involvement Fair.
The fair, which is held on the College Green, has a new feature over last year – the addition of several plaques on the west portico wall of Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium. They honor the diversity of speakers who have visited campus. The new plaques include Cesar Chavez, Marion Anderson, Pearl S. Buck and Margaret Mead.
In case of inclement weather the Student Involvement Fair will be held on the concourse of the Convocation Center.
