The Buffalo State community will usher in a new academic year and welcome the Class of 2020 during the First-Year Convocation. All members of the Buffalo State community are encouraged to attend.
Convocation, from the Latin words meaning “to call together,” has been used to describe a ceremonial assembly of members of a college since the fifteenth century. At Buffalo State, the annual event provides first-year students with the opportunity to hear from administrators as well as to meet fellow classmates and faculty.
President Katherine Conway-Turner, Provost Melanie Perreault, and University College Dean Scott Johnson will welcome new students—and their parents—to the beginning of their college journey. Dean of Students Charles Kenyon and United Students Government President Terron Grant will also address the audience.
Additionally, deans of each of the college’s six schools will give an overview of their areas and what students can expect at Buffalo State.
