A Wildcat Welcome

Weinberg College’s Class of 2019 and transfer students gathered under a brilliant blue sky Sept. 16 for Fall 2015 Convocation. The event on Deering Meadow anchored a packed week of social events, field trips and advising sessions prior to the start of the new school year. Highlights of the week included the March Through the Arch, the Purple Pride assembly in Welsh-Ryan Arena and an evening at the Field Museum of Natural History.

“Be adventurous in the intellectual paths that you will be taking,” Dean Adrian Randolph told the 1,000-plus students on the lawn. “Take new chances and see where they lead you. It takes a lot of courage to take a class that you don’t think you’ll be comfortable in. But we want you to have that courage, because it will serve you wonderfully later in life in anything that you do.”
