Monday, August 13, is one of the key dates on our academic calendar as the newest members of our Spartan community – freshmen and transfer students – participate in the second year of the NAV1GATE student convocation experience. This is an essential program at UNCG that brings to life our tenacious commitment to student success.
Let’s help our newest students feel welcome and show the spirit of the university they are joining. Wear your Blue and Gold. Show off your Spartan Spirit (especially since our Spartan has a brand new look). Set the tone for the academic year by demonstrating to all our students that we are a united, strong, positive campus community. Show them we are here to help them be successful, above all else, as they embark on this new journey at UNCG.
You might also enjoy watching the opening Convocation Celebration via Facebook Live beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Monday. And feel free to share your welcome messages and photos of NAV1GATE on social media by tagging your posts with #NAV1GATEUNCG and with our new campaign hashtag, #UNCGWay.
For additional information, including details on road closures to facilitate the safe movement of students, be sure to visit the NAV1GATE website.
