Students, faculty, staff, and administrators assembled Wednesday for the Lindenwood University’s first-ever convocation ceremony at its Belleville campus.
President James D. Evans and vice presidents Jann Weitzel and Jerry Bladdick welcomed the university’s historic first group of undergraduate day students in Belleville. After remarks from administrators, each Lindenwood employee at the Belleville campus “adopted” a group of students and offered them a Lindenwood pin, and the students later pinned one another. Bladdick told students to keep the pins in anticipation of wearing them on their regalia when they become Lindenwood’s first graduating class from the daytime Belleville campus.
After the convocation ceremony, everyone gathered outside for the ceremonial planting of a Linden tree.
