A new set of freshmen filed into Hood College’s Hodson Outdoor Theater donning their red beanies and ready to start their college journey.
Hood held its convocation ceremony to kick off its 125th year as classes began Monday. The college welcomed 258 first-year students and 85 new transfer students in its opening ceremony with remarks from several Hood faculty and students.
“Convocation is the time for us to affirm our commitment to a vibrant and rich intellectual life,” Hood President Andrea Chapdelaine told the students. “To aspire to learn more and learn more deeply.”
