EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma hosted its first-ever Freshman Convocation in Hamilton Field House.
The Sunday event served as the official welcome for the class of 2018 to the university’s academic community.
Convocation began with a ceremonial walk through Central Gateway, the arch in front of Old North, to signify the start of the students’ journey at Central. Graduates traditionally pass through the gateway as they walk into spring and fall commencement ceremonies.
Convocation also included the awarding of more than $2,000 in tuition waivers to four students.
