Fall Conference Opens at BSC

Fall Conference Opens at BSC
President Ortiz speaks at Convocation in 2007.

Fall Conference 2009 kicks off Monday, Sept. 21 with a morning convocation in the Bronco Student Center's Ursa Major Suite. The three-day event runs through Wednesday, Sept. 23, when new students attend Bronco Fusion.


Reflecting the severity of the budget cuts, the traditional events on Monday have been reconfigured. The university will forego breakfast and the afternoon reception at the Manor House. Convocation will now begin at 9 a.m. in the Bronco Student Center, with the annual Service Awards following immediately.

Convocation and Service Awards presentation will be streamed live online at https://video.cpp.edu/FallConf. The recorded video will also be available to watch after the event.
