New Student Convocation set for all five campuses
Palm Beach State College will hold a New Student Convocation on each campus to welcome an anticipated 5,000 first-time-in-college students and their families this fall.
The events will be held on different days and times before and after the start of the fall term Aug. 23. Some of the activities will include interactive games, speakers, food, giveaways, appearances by Palmer the Panther and PBSC Drumline performances.
“It’s an introduction to the college experience,’’ said Drew Barrett, student activities manager for the Belle Glade campus. “New students are afforded the opportunity to meet faculty, staff and administrators and make friends with fellow classmates.”
“It’s all about the connection,’’ said Angela Allen, student activities manager on the Palm Beach Gardens campus. “They’re going to be here for the next two years. Networking is an important part of the College experience.”
