New students cheered the beginning of their collegiate careers at the fifth annual UIC Convocation held Sunday in the UIC Pavilion.
About 4,150 students and their families attended the annual event, which was followed by a picnic, games and music at the Chancellor’s New Student Welcome Block Party in the courtyard of the Student Residence and Commons on the east campus.
