TO: Incoming Undergraduates

FROM: The Student Activities Office

The Student Activities Office invites all students to take part in a fabulous first weekend of activities to celebrate the beginning of the 2003-04 academic year.

The College Convocation, scheduled for noon on Friday, September 5, will get the year off to a great start. Immediately following Convocation, students can attend the Activities Fair at 3 p.m. on Dandelion Square to learn more about the 150-plus registered student organizations. The fair offers a great opportunity to see all the organizations in action and gives students a chance to get involved.

There will be live music, giveaways, and demonstrations by student organizations. The Activities Fair is cosponsored by Wilson Commons Student Activities and Athletics and Recreation.

Yellowjacket football season kicks off on Saturday, September 6, with the first home game against the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays at noon. Continue the excitement with a spiced-up Caribbean Carnival on Yellowjacket Day from 2 to 10 p.m., cosponsored by the Dean of Students, Wilson Commons Student Activities, the Black Students' Union, and Campus Activities Board. There will be live Caribbean music, dancing, food, vendors, and carnival rides into the night!

Wrapping up the weekend of fun, the fraternity and sorority community is sponsoring a picnic on Sunday, September 7, on the Wilson Commons Lawn.

So grab your shades, don your favorite Rochester attire, and show your school spirit!
