First Year Experience

On Friday, September 3, Julie Ray, associate dean of the First Year Experience, and her team launched their First Year Convocation. As part of a new series of convocations planned throughout the year, Friday's First Year Show was creative and fun, helping first year students learn how to successfully transition into their college career. It introduced students to part of Gordon's history through a video clip from "A School Of Christ" about founder A. J. Gordon. The Show also featured a power point on study skills (thanks to Dr. Craig Story, professor of Biology), a video presentation on getting enough sleep, and an "Involvement Pageant" to showcase ways to get involved in student-led clubs, followed by a club fair in the KOSC lobby. Next month's First Year Convocation is sure to be an equal success. The next theme? Relationships!
