The University of Northern Colorado will mark the beginning of its 125th year with an annual ceremony this week to welcome new students and faculty to the community. Following move-in day activities Thursday-Friday, Aug. 21-22, the university will hold its hour-long convocation at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, in Cranford Park.
Cranford Park, located on 10th Avenue north of Gunter Hall, is where the university's founding in 1889 was originally celebrated. The public is invited to attend.
In much the same way that commencement celebrates the end of a student's time at the university, convocation recognizes the beginning. Students will be greeted by campus and community figures including UNC President Kay Norton, her husband and mayor of Greeley, Tom Norton, and Provost Robyn Wacker.
After an introductory course in UNC history, pride and traditions, students will be led back to Turner Green on the west side of campus for the Taste of UNC and Bear Fest celebrations, featuring music, games, prizes and finger foods provided by Dining Services. All students with a meal plan eat for free, and all others can purchase a ticket at the event for $6.
Visit www.unco.edu/convocation for the inclement weather plan.
All of Friday's events are components of Bear Welcome 2014, which spans the first two weeks of classes and provides students with safe and exciting activities to ease the transition to college life.
Already on campus are student-athletes for many of UNC's 19 NCAA Division I athletics teams, including volleyball, football and soccer. The campus also welcomed 150 incoming freshmen Friday, Aug. 15, in coordination with the Lead On program, during which students participate in leadership and academic success workshops and make connections with fellow students and campus organizations.
Students will begin moving into the residence halls Thursday, Aug. 21. Campus and community members are invited to volunteer with the move-in process by helping carry personal items, providing directions and answering other questions. Sign up to volunteer here.
Fall classes begin Aug. 25.
For an expected crowd of 2,700, Dining Services expects will prepare:
