The Daemen College 2012 Convocation will take place Thursday, September 6, in Wick Social Room in Wick Center on the Daemen campus, from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

 

Fall Convocation is a Daemen tradition that welcomes new students to the Daemen College community. Convocation celebrates the beginning of each student’s academic experience at Daemen. Convocation also represents an opportunity for all members of the Daemen community to assemble for the first time at the start of each new academic year. It provides members of the administration and faculty with an important opportunity to extend a sincere welcome to each new student, as well as returning students.

 

This year’s Convocation speaker will be Maureen Kellick ’74, director of Marketing/ PR & Development for Artpark.

 

Additionally, Convocation 2012 will feature welcoming remarks from Daemen President Dr. Edwin Clausen, faculty, and administrators as well as a viewing of the Daemen “Take Charge” orientation video.

 

Convocation will be followed by an all-campus luncheon in Wick Dining Room, compliments of the Daemen College Student Association.
