The Hood College Convocation Ceremony was held on a very hot Sunday, Aug. 26.
Here’s what our rising freshmen had to say:
“The heat was suffocating. Faces and voiced blurred together in melted pool, with the only words floating at the top being a thousand variations of ‘God, it’s so hot.’”-Keiko Cahill
“As a freshman I came into the convocation ceremony very confused. Once I learned about the tradition of the dinks and the ceremony I was excited to receive mine and become apart of the Hood community.” -Delaney Crawford
“The ceremony lasted for far too long in the hot sun according to students and staff, but the addresses from president chap and our guest speaker were very well received.” -Matthew Wilder
