Tonight was out annual new student convocation hosted by the Engineering Student Council. This year we were also fortunate to have Southern Company sponsor the event. It looks like we had somewhere over 250 new freshmen and transfer students attend which is one of the largest crowds we have had in a while. We had it in the newly renovated Simrall auditorium.
I spoke to the students a little about their responsibilities in living up to the trust put in them by those funding their educations, specifically the tax payers. We also encouraged them to join and become active in student organizations and gave them a chance to meet with those organizations.
Bravo Zulu to the Engineering Student Council for all the hard work they put in to organizing and executing this event!
