1,300 students attend Northwest convocation

Approximately 1,300 first year Northwest Missouri State University students attended the annual new student convocation yesterday afternoon on the Northwest campus.

Academic leaders encouraged students to engage in and be involved with the Northwest community during the welcome event. They asked students to take responsibility for their academic and personal success during their years at Northwest and encouraged students to ask for help when things aren't going well.

Yesterday's convocation and the traditional March to the Tower, during which new students parade under the Memorial Bell Tower at the center of campus, highlighted the conclusion of Northwest's Advantage week for new students.
