Convocation and Class Picture
Monday August 17, 2015
10 a.m. - noon in Trask Coliseum
Convocation is UNCW’s official academic welcome for the incoming Freshman Class.
Meeting with Faculty
First-year students will receive a small-group assignment by e-mail from the Office of Transitions Programs to let them know where to report by 10 a.m. A faculty member will be there to welcome the group and offer their perspective on your academic success at UNCW.
Unveiling of Class Flag & Class Picture
A short ceremony at the clock tower will include the unveiling of the Class of 2019 flag, a welcome from the Student Body President and the beginning of your first “Trask Trek.”
At Trask Coliseum, the formal ceremony will begin with a welcome by Interim Provost Marilyn Sheerer and then comments by a featured speaker. Returning student leaders will be available throughout the morning to provide guidance and answer questions.
Please join us for this great tradition at UNCW! Wear your Orientation shirt or another favorite teal shirt for the official class picture to be taken during the event.
