New students at Indiana State University filed into Hulman Center Sunday night for Fall Convocation that was part pep rally, part induction ceremony and part motivational seminar. The ISU band, cheerleaders and Sparkettes entertained. The university president and his wife, the Student Government Association president and Miss ISU called on the new arrivals to get involved on campus and ensure their success by calling on faculty, staff and fellow students for help whenever it is needed.
SGA President Steven Flowers led the freshmen in a student oath in which they pledged to devote their energies to the pursuit of truth and learning, build their education in defense of human dignity in opposition to intolerance and conduct their lives in a manner that brings honor to themselves and the university.
Keynote speaker Jason Winkle motivated incoming students by relaying lessons of life he learned by way of everyone from his mother to a popular movie, an Army officer and a motorcycle instructor.
