New student convocation; a continued success


Donna Bennett, IV Leader Staff

On the morning of Aug. 15, 2014, IVCC’s gymnasium was filled with incoming freshmen students eager to learn about their next chapter in life.

New student convocation had approximately 270 students touring campus, discovering new student activities and learning about the wide variety of student services that can help them succeed.

According to Connie Skerston, Assistant Director of Admissions and Records, the goal of new student convocation is to welcome incoming students to IVCC and learn about the college’s expectations for them.

Convocation is not only a new experience for students, but for IVCC as well. As of this fall, the all-day affair is only on its seventh year; going strong since 2008.
