Inauguration celebrations bring the community together

03/24/2014

The Inauguration of the College’s 11th president, Katherine Bergeron, on Saturday, April 5, will be a momentous occasion for the entire community. But the festivities aren’t limited to that day’s ceremony. The College is hosting many events at which staff, faculty, students, alumni, guests and members of the local community can celebrate.

One of the first events will take place from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, at the Thames Club in downtown New London. The greater New London community is invited to drop in and meet President Bergeron and other College administrators, faculty, staff and students at this special community reception, which will feature refreshments, a student a cappella performance and a short speaking program — including New London Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio — at 5:45 p.m.

The full schedule of Inauguration events is available here.
