Louisiana Tech’s Division of Student Affairs and the Bulldog Achievement Resource Center (BARC) invite all first-year students to attend the 2nd Annual First-Year Convocation on Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. in Howard Auditorium.

The First-Year Experience centers around eight core initiatives the university has adopted to acclimate entering freshmen to their new Tech family. The First-Year Convocation is an essential part of this experience and will highlight Welcome Week activities.

“We want it to mirror graduation,” said Stacy Gilbert, director of co-curricular programs in the Bulldog Achievement Resource Center. “It struck us that most times the only time the whole class gets together is graduation, and that’s why they don’t really feel a connection to their class.”

For more information on the First-Year Convocation, please contact Stacy Gilbert in the BARC at 257-4730.
