A new tradition will start at Cañada College on Wednesday, Aug. 29 when the college hosts a Convocation Ceremony to welcome students to school.

"The Cañada Convocation is a gathering of faculty, staff, students and community members to celebrate and prepare for the academic year," said David Johnson, Dean of the Humanities and Social Sciences Division. "This event underscores our commitment to academic excellence and highlights the opportunities and resources Cañada affords to every student."

Convocation will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the Main Theater.

Johnson said bringing together students, staff, faculty and the community at one event to kick-off the new academic year helps formally welcome students to the company of scholars.

"It affirms the responsibility we have to educate and prepare our students and makes clear the expectations we have of them," he said.

Interim President Jim Keller said the ceremony will give the public a chance to interact with the college and learn more about Cañada's rich academic history and educational offerings.

"We want people to understand that Cañada is their college," he said.

The ceremony is open to everyone. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Maggie Souza at or call (650) 306-3238.
