Yesterday, Aug. 19, Sonoma State University held its annual Convocation, signifying the beginning of the fall semester. Convocation attendees were treated to a brief performance by Trio Ariadne, the Weill Hall Artists-in-Residence. Sonoma State University begins the year with 9,100 students, 3,000 of whom live in on-campus housing. President Ruben Armiñana spoke about "Getting Better," describing how the University's goals of retention, graduation and satisfaction have been challenged due to budget issues over the past few years--but still stand strong for SSU's students. Read the speeches of President Armiñana, Provost Andrew Rogerson, Chair of the Faculty Margaret Purser, Associated Students President Mac Hart, and Staff Representative Marybeth Hull at http://www.sonoma.edu/about/convocation/.
