Dear Members of Baruch College Faculty,
Please join me on Monday, August 26 to welcome an enthusiastic class of new students to Baruch College and to open the 2019-2020 academic year.
First Year Convocation in Mason Hall:
Faculty are essential participants in the First Year Convocation, which will begin this year on Monday, August 26 at 10:00am in Mason Hall on the first floor of the 17 Lexington Avenue Building; the robing begins at 9:00am in room 306 of 17 Lex, where a continental breakfast will be available.
At the event, I will welcome the new class and introduce key college administrators and the President of the Undergraduate Student Government. The keynote address will be delivered by Akhil Sharma, author of this year’s first year text, Family Life, a coming-of-age story of an eight-year old Indian boy and the many challenges he and his recently immigrated family face coming to America.
As is our tradition, the ceremony will conclude with a rousing sing-along of the Baruch Alma Mater.
The faculty attend Convocation in regalia and sit on the stage as a group. If you choose to join the platform party at First-Year Convocation, please RSVP by logging onto the RSVP site. You will be asked whether you will need a robe for Convocation (and, if so, you will be asked for size details.)
DEADLINE FOR REGALIA: July 29. Please do this today!
I look forward to welcoming you at Convocation on August 26.
