Join President Ferguson and Ball State faculty as we welcome in the 2014-2015 academic year.  The convocation will include a procession by faculty in academic regalia and President Paul W. Ferguson will welcome students.

Alumnus and associate producer of Super Soul Sunday (Harpo Studios, Inc./OWN-TV), Zachary D. Perlinski will address students and Student Government Association officers will be introduced to students.

This is a mandatory event for all incoming freshman.  If you are a new freshman living on campus, you will come to the convocation with your resident assistant.  Transfer students are also encouraged to attend.

After this program, reading groups will meet to discuss Wes Moore's "The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates."
