Entering the Gates : Friday, Aug. 25

As alumni of WCSU, you are invited to participate in WCSU Welcome Week activities on Friday, Aug. 25.

 1. If you have a son or daughter entering WCSU, the Alumni Parents Legacy Photo is at noon on the Old Main Front Steps

 2. The Entering the Gates Ceremony is at 1:30 p.m. by the Midtown Gates.

The Entering the Gates Ceremony is symbolic of their entrance into the university to embark on one of the most exciting experiences of their lives. Please come and cheer our freshman class of 2021 as they proceed through the Midtown campus gates. As an alumna/alumnus, you are a role model of achievement for our students; therefore, your class representation is vital.

We will gather at the university gates around 1:00pm/1:15pm to be ready for the start at 1:30pm.  As with the last few years, just prior to the procession, we will hold a very brief ceremony focusing on the tradition of Entering the Gates after which one of our incoming students from the Class of 2021will cut the ribbon and open the gates for the procession to begin. 

To RSVP, call (203) 837-8298 or email alumni@wcsu.edu by Friday, Aug. 18.
