New Student Convocation

August 27, 2017


Every year, New Student Convocation marks the official start to the academic year at Radford University. This year we are excited to welcome the Class of 2021!

This event is all about you! We will celebrate your arrival to campus and entrance into higher education. You’ll hear from various members of the campus community – from students to faculty, and even Radford University’s President Hemphill. Plus, you’ll get the inside scoop on what it means to be a Highlander and advice on how to be successful at Radford.

We can’t wait to see you back on campus this fall. We’ll see you August 27 in front of McConnell Library at New Student Convocation!
