NAV1GATE New Student Convocation Aug. 14

Faculty and staff are encouraged to wear their blue and gold on Monday, Aug. 14, as the university welcomes its newest students during the newly conceived NAV1GATE New Student Convocation.

The university expanded its traditional convocation this year to highlight academic resources and connect students with faculty, staff and student leaders in their academic units. More than 3,500 freshmen and transfer students are expected to attend.

The day kicks off with Convocation Celebration hosted by Chancellor Gilliam and Provost Dunn, followed by welcome events with school deans and academic support sessions. NAV1GATE also includes lunch on College Avenue, a history walk through the tunnel, and afternoon activities at the Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness.

The university encourages faculty and staff who are not directly involved in programming to wear school colors and welcome new Spartans, either in person or on social media. The event hashtag is #NAV1GATEUNCG. You can also be part of the day by watching events and wishing students well on Facebook Live on the Undergraduate Admissions page.
