This year as Opening Convocation is back and so are several traditions! What staff and faculty need to know to participate in opening convocation:

Arrive 10:30 a.m. or earlier.

AugSem faculty will be sitting with their AugSem classes and transfer students will be with their Orientation Leaders.
All faculty and staff are invited to the luncheon. We ask that first-years, transfers, and AugSem faculty are prioritized in the lunch line due to timing.
In case of rain, the lunch will be located inside Christensen Center.

We hope that you will join us in welcoming our new first-year and transfer students to their Augsburg community!
