New Student Convocation 2011

A big thanks to all the volunteers and workers who helped us hand out Go Big Read books to new students! Convocation was a great success, and we’re excited for this new group of Badgers to join us in reading and discussing Enrique’s Journey.

In his address to the new students, Chancellor Ward stated that “We expect this book will foster debate…it asks each of us to think if what we believe in is fair and just.” Further, he said that “Enrique’s Journey is a story of hope even in the darkest circumstances.” We hope that the Class of 2015 will agree!

Volunteers wait to hand out copies of Enrique’s Journey as freshmen leave the Kohl Center.



New students ready to start the year!
