Westminster freshman coming

Westminster College will welcome the class of 2010 with the traditional opening convocation at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Orr Auditorium.

Approximately 340 new students will be greeted by nearly 80 Fresh Start upperclassmen, wearing tie-dye shirts. The Fresh Start staff and volunteers from the football team will help the new students unload personal items into the residence halls.

After unpacking is completed and lunch is served, the class of 2010 and their parents are invited to attend the opening convocation ceremony. Dr. Scott A Mackenzie, assistant professor of theater who has recently returned from serving in Iraq, will deliver the address, "Once and Future."

After a special president's reception, the parents and first-year students will say their goodbyes. When the parents depart, the new students will be divided among the volunteers, who will serve as group leaders for the next week.
