New student convocation set for Aug. 15

OGLESBY — Illinois Valley Community College will host its seventh annual new student convocation from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 15 in the gymnasium.

Incoming students are required to attend the convocation that is designed as a welcome and orientation to IVCC. After the ceremony, students will participate in breakout sessions to discuss areas of concern, college expectations and support opportunities.

“Convocation is designed to unite all new students with IVCC faculty and to meet our President Jerry Corcoran. We look forward to welcoming everyone,” said Mark Grzybowski, interim associate vice president for student services.

After convocation, students are invited to a new student picnic in the courtyard. The free event will include activities, intramural games, prizes and a chance to meet faculty and staff.
