Cornell College Events
New Student Convocation (link)
|Date:||Wednesday, August 27th|
|Time:||4:00 pm-4:20 pm|
Cornell will hold its annual New Student Convocation outside, in the quad surrounded by South, Norton, and College halls. The event welcomes the Class of 2018 into the Cornell family and gives parents a chance to see an academic procession with faculty and hear brief messages from the president, dean, and chaplain. Students will process down the pedestrian mall from Allee Chapel to College Hall, passing through the ranks of the faculty and staff, who will welcome them and wish them good luck. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be held in King Chapel.
