Lafayette officially opened the 184th academic year with Convocation ceremonies Sunday. The event is the final piece of new student orientation. As part of the new Connected Communities program, the 673 first-year students attended the ceremony as one of five class commons – Victoire, Alliance, Hermione, Cadmus, and Brandywine. Convocation is presided over by President Alison Byerly and includes the new tradition of presenting the sword of the Marquis de Lafayette to the incoming class.
