Friday's Opening Convocation marks the formal start of the 2013-2014 academic year at Lebanon Valley College, during which Student Government officers lead new students through a receiving line of LVC faculty, administration, and trustees in full academic regalia.
Dr. Lewis Evitts Thayne, LVC president, will host a program that includes his own address, as well as remarks from representatives of Student Affairs and the current student body. New students will recite, in unison, the Matriculation Oath, affirming their wish to join the LVC community and to pursue the ideals of learning, service, moral and spiritual commitment.
The families and friends of new students are encouraged and welcomed to attend Opening Convocation, but for those who cannot attend this special day, the entire program will be broadcast live from the Arnold Sports Center Gymnasium on LVCtv. Tune in to www.lvc.edu/LVCtv at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23, and join us in welcoming the LVC Class of 2017.
