First Day

We are happy to announce the 3rd Annual "First Day" on August 25, 2009 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. "First Day" was created to welcome all new students (freshman and transfer students) to the academic life at Sonoma State University. It is an opportunity for the students to receive an official welcome from University faculty, staff and students. During that time the students will engage in many activities to get to know others in their class and will also complete the CIRP Freshman Survey if they are not a transfer student. From there they will walk over to the gymnasium for New Student Convocation. We want to create a traditional welcome for our students that will mirror the graduation in Spring, thus creating bookends of their experience at SSU.

The entire campus community is encouraged to attend. Any faculty who would like to be part of the Convocation Processional should meet at the Stevenson loading dock at 11:15 so you can march over together to the gymnasium. All faculty are encouraged to attend and are asked to wear regalia if you have it. All faculty should try to attend with or without regalia.

The following is the agenda for "First Day" and room assignments for all new SSU students.

10:00-10:45 AM - Welcome, name games, icebreakers
10:45-11:30 AM - Administer the CIRP
11:30-11:45 AM - Walk over to the gymnasium for Convocation
11:45AM-1:00 PM - New Student Convocation

We look forward to seeing you at Convocation!
