Niagara University kicked off its 153rd year by hosting a convocation for new students and their families. The event, now in its seventh year, was held in the Gallagher Center on the Lewiston campus.
New students entered the event to the cheers of Niagara faculty, staff and administration. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors also cheered on the new class. The Rev. Joseph L. Levesque, C.M., Niagara University president, welcomed those gathered. Remarks were also given by Dr. Craig Rivera, associate professor of criminal justice, and Niagara alums Ben, ’81, and Kathleen Tarantino, ’80.
Each year, university personnel from both the academic and student-life sectors organize the event, which is developing a rich and growing tradition for Niagara’s new students.
