Posted: Updated:
RUSTON, La. -

Louisiana Tech held its annual First-Year Convocation on Wednesday to welcome the new freshman class of students to the Louisiana Tech campus for the beginning of the 2013 fall quarter. More than 1,000 new students were greeted by President Les Guice, university administrators, alumni and other Tech students as they celebrated the transition from high school to college.

Following the convocation program, the new students deposited their Tenet Medallion, which was distributed before the ceremony and bears the Tenets of Tech, into the Lady of the Mist which symbolizes their commitment to their educations and to uphold the Tenets of Tech. When the students graduate, the Tenet Medallions are returned to them at commencement with their year of graduation inscribed on the back.
