Another summer has come and gone and it’s time to welcome the class of 2017 to the Rutgers community. First-year students entered the High Point Stadium where they were greeted with free t-shirts and began their journey by ringing the bell, symbolizing the start of their first year. Pre-convocation festivities included performances from various student organizations, dance contests, and freebies from the t-shirt launcher. After formal Convocation which featured a welcome speech from President Dr. Robert L. Barchi, students were sent to a BBQ and carnival filled with fun events such as laser tag and mechanical bull riding. What a great way to start the new semester!
