I invite you to attend Caltech's annual convocation ceremony held on Sunday, September 23, at 3:00 p.m. in Beckman Auditorium. The event offers a warm welcome and introduction to the Institute for new undergraduate students, their family and friends, new graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.

The program includes greetings from President Rosenbaum, and a brief introduction to student life at Caltech inside and outside of the classroom. A special feature this year will be a presentation on Caltech's Performing and Visual Arts with performances featuring postdocs Sandra Koenig and Rajib Schubert, graduate student Matteo Ronchi, and undergraduate students Tara Porter and Sara Fish. Performances will highlight some of the activities that are available and the positive impact the experience of participating in performing and visual arts has had on their time at Caltech.

Your presence will add to this event's importance for the new members of our academic community and their families. I hope that you will be able to attend.
