Convocation and Tree Planting

Convocation is an assembly, which introduces the new academic year for all members of the Clarke community.  This is a formal academic event with academic procession of administration and faculty.  New students are presented with a tassel as a symbol of their goal to earn their degree.

Tree Planting began at Clarke in 1906 as a means of honoring the senior class.  In the past, the seniors collaborated on and presented a skit, poem, or song that conveyed how the tree, planted in their freshman year, symbolized their roots at Clarke.
