Convocation 2015 - Group 1
Convocation is the official welcome event at Ohio State Newark for first-year students. Approximately 400 students were gathered at the historic Midland Theatre and welcomed to autumn semester by Dean MacDonald and special guest, Newark Mayor Jeff Hall along with a video welcome from President Drake. Following a video presentation “Community Service at Ohio State Newark”, there was an informative presentation from faculty and special guests about opportunities for service learning and civic engagement in the Newark area. Convocation is the first of many memorable moments for students at Ohio State Newark and the only time prior to graduation that the entire class is gathered. Following Convocation a welcome reception for students, faculty, staff and community members was held at The Works Museum Courtyard. See Convocation 2015 - Group 2 for more photos.
