Freshman Convocation is Aug. 21

Published: August 19, 2016

Texas A&M University-Texarkana freshmen will celebrate time-honored traditions at Freshman Convocation on Sunday, Aug. 21, in Eagle Hall of the University Center.

Convocation is an academic ceremony that traditionally allows newly-matriculated students to join the university community and begin their academic career among their colleagues and professors.

Students will hear from professors and other students, as well as university administrators. Students also will sign the university matricula, a ceremonial parchment that contains the names of all of the students and alumni since 2010.

Becoming part of the university community is an exciting event in a student’s life, and the role of the Convocation is to solemnize and celebrate that moment.

Dr. Craig Nakashian, assistant professor of History, is chair of the Freshman Convocation Committee.
