Join us for Convocation, the signature Opening Week event, on Friday, Aug. 19, in the Show Me Center. We have made several exciting changes to this day, including a new emphasis on interactive activities, including contests and give-a-ways, to generate spirit and build pride in our new Redhawk students. We invite all faculty and staff to attend and welcome the future Class of 2020. Students will have the opportunity to meet President Carlos Vargas, Student Government President Peyton Mogley and motivational speaker John O’Leary. Doors open at 10:45 a.m. Activities hosted by Southeast Athletics begin at 11 a.m. and the formal Convocation program starts at noon. Contact New Student Programs with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 651-5166.
