Candlelighting Ceremony

University Events

The Fall Convocation and Candle Lighting Service welcomes ECSU's new freshman class and provides them with a formal introduction to the underlying purpose of ECSU and the university's expectations of them as students.

University administrators, faculty, staff, and students convene as a family at the beginning of the academic year to renew their commitment to excellence which is a tradition of the university. Each year, a motivating and inspiring speaker is invited to generate an atmosphere of encouragement for the university family, and especially to the freshman students.

The Fall Convocation and Candle Lighting Ceremony is a traditional ritual which officially inducts the freshmen and transfer students into the University family.

Open to the public.
