Tech Holds Convocation Ceremony

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

Montana Tech officially kicked off the school year Friday, with their fourth annual convocation ceremony.

The ceremony serves as a welcome to all the new students, and a way for the young adults to say goodbye to their families.

A majority of faculty and new students attended this morning's ceremony.

The chancellor of the university also gave a speech.

He says the ceremony is a start to the student's careers.

"Out of this group of students here, a lot of them will become lifelong friends," said Chancellor Don Blackketter. "Maybe they'll find their spouses in this very room, more than likely there will be a few of those. We're just trying to make them think about it a little bit as they get started. They'll look back on this day and say, "remember when we met at convocation?" It will be fun."

Classes at Montana Tech get underway on Monday.
