About 500 incoming students took the new student oath during LeMoyne-Owen College’s Annual Fall Convocation on Sept. 22. During the event, held at Metropolitan Church, students were charged to be visionaries. This is the largest incoming freshman class since 1998.
The theme of the ceremony was “Where There Is No Vision.” President of the college, Johnnie B. Watson gave the convocation address.
“Many of you sitting here today have already visualized the contributions you are going to make to science, education, and social service, and the overall improvement of the world in which we live…If you can dream it, you can achieve it,” Watson said.
The convocation was presented to over 1100 students, faculty, staff and alumni. The LeMoyne-Owen Concert Choir performed two songs and the Student Government Association gave the acceptance charge.
