Blue and Gold Beginnings
The 2012 - 2013 school year kicks off with Blue and Gold Beginnings!
The afternoon begins at 2:00 p.m. with incoming freshmen participating in a team building exercise with assistance from their academic departments, student organizations and freshman dormitories. The groups will be creating flags that represent their departmental major.
Upon completion of this activity the students will display their flags as they walk from Centennial Village to the Junell Center. The Marching Ram Band will accompany students during the procession.
A brief, formal ceremony will be held starting at 3:30 p.m. in the Junell Center Stephens Arena where new students will receive a Class of 2016 pin.
Student, faculty and campus leaders as well as an alumnus will offer words of welcome and encouragement to the entering class.
Following the Blue and Gold ceremony, new students will gather in the Auxiliary Gym at the Junell Center for a departmental and organizational fair. A drawing will be held for three iPads.
