B. Academic Emphasis Day

This is an academic convocation which is conducted every 3rd Friday of June to welcome/orient new students and to re-orient old students on their academic pursuit in the university.  Part of the program is the introduction of the academic team members and the formal welcome of new students by the VP Academics and the college deans.  This formal ceremony marks the official beginning of the students’ academic career at the university.  This convocation includes a formal procession of the new students and the faculty in academic regalia.
