Procession and Convocation
Main Hall lawn
Picnic and Concert
Music by Boogie and the Yo-Yo’z
A Convocation gallery
Under a cloudless sky the faculty, in full regalia, welcomed their newest students to Convocation 2007. Following Mass of the Holy Spirit, professors lined the mall to welcome the class of 2011 as the freshmen processed to the Main Hall lawn.
There President William Hynes rang in the new academic year and welcomed the entire campus community. Student speakers and others set the tone for the upcoming semester with words on what to expect—and what would be expected in return.
Enjoy for yourself the ceremonial, and the fun that followed, by leafing through our Convocation photo gallery. You’ll see how students, along with faculty, staff and their families, kicked off the new academic year with a picnic and outdoor music from Boogie and the Yo-Yo’z. Fireworks rounded out the celebrations and launched 2007-08 in fine style.
