Help Support the Student Convocation

Members of the Student Convocation Committee would like to invite you to attend Purdue Calumet’s seventh annual Student Convocation on Thursday, August 28, 2014 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The event serves as a welcoming ceremony for new and continuing Purdue Calumet students. Last year nearly 2,000 students, faculty, staff and administrators joined in the festivities.

The formal program will open with brief remarks by Purdue Calumet Chancellor Thomas Keon. Immediately following the formal program, everyone is invited to enjoy the Welcome Week Resource Fair and Lunch on the Lawn. Information tables sponsored by schools, departments and student organizations will provide information on their programs, services and scheduled events. There will also be music, food booths, games and give-aways!

This event is a great way to meet Chancellor Keon, members of the faculty and staff and your fellow students. Professors have been encouraged to allow their classes to attend the Convocation, so don’t miss the fun. We look forward to your participation in this event and hope to see you there!
