President Mearns formally welcomes freshmen to the beginning of their academic career introducing them to the Ball State community involvement and its student-centered commitment to its newest members in the community of learners. As the university celebrates its Centennial, students will be challenged to live the Beneficence pledge.
In assembling with faculty, staff, and administrators, the freshmen gain a sense of identity that more deeply connects them to each other and to the university.
New freshmen who live in the residence halls will come to the Convocation with their resident assistant. Transfer students also are encouraged to attend.
