UNC Charlotte held its first-ever New Student Convocation on August 24, 2015, to welcome and introduce all new undergraduate students to the university community. The Lee College of Engineering began the day for its students with “Donuts with the Dean,” a gathering that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the college and provided freshmen and transfer students with breakfast. Dean Bob Johnson and the faculty then led a procession to the Dale Halton Arena in the UNC Charlotte Student Activity Center to participate in the New Student Convocation ceremony. During convocation, students learned about UNC Charlotte’s history, mission, values and academic expectations. The ceremony was followed by departmental and collegiate activities including tours of laboratories and introductions to student support opportunities, as well as more food including ice cream and pizza.
