STUDY: Students who miss Convocation 90% more likely to fail in school, relationships, life

While most students were aware that skipping such a landmark ceremony was a sure sign of failure later in life, many did not know exactly why that was true.

“You see, information disseminated during Convocation ceremonies simply cannot be replicated,”

Two students reportedly have wedding bells in their future after their Jansport backpacks became tangled while in line for Chick-Fil-A at the Hub.
