Alabama State University will celebrate the academic achievements of 316 of its freshmen class members during its annual University College’s Honor Convocation on Tuesday (March 5), at 11 a.m. in the Ralph D. Abernathy College of Education auditorium. This year’s theme is “Believe in Yourself.”

Chicago native Ivery Hall, an honor student and a first-generation college student, will be the guest speaker. The deans of ASU’s academic colleges also will be present. The program includes a performance from the Department of Theatre Arts.

To qualify for recognition, a freshman class member must have completed up to 16 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0.

University College (U.C.) is the home-college at ASU during a student’s freshman year and until they declare a major. Students in U.C. tackle core courses in humanities, math and science. They also get help from programs designed to help them succeed, such as tutoring and career counseling, honors courses and help for first-generation students.
