Campus Community Announcements & Calendar

 

Mitchell College Convocation 2019

Thursday, August 29 | 4pm in the Clarke Center

Convocation is a time for our community to celebrate the start of the academic year and welcome our newest Mitchell class. 

As part of our Convocation tradition students will:
  • Be welcomed by Interim Co-President, Dr. Catherine Wright, and addressed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Jennifer Ryley Welsh, and the SGA President, Hadeel Oadeh
  • Become part of Mitchell College history as they sign the Class Book
  • Together, read aloud the Class Pledge
  • Recess to the steps of Duques Center to have their class photo taken (to be repeated at Commencement 2023!)
  • Listen as we ring the College bell 23 times to signify the start of the academic year and to welcome the Class of 2023

The class photo will be taken directly following the ceremony on the steps of Duques. All first-year students are asked to wear their Anchors Aweigh shirt or a white shirt to Convocation. Faculty, staff and other members of the Mitchell community can wear red to show their Mariner spirit!

A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
