A New Tradition: Catawba Students Sign "The Book"

August 20, 2014

To signify their commitment to the Catawba College community, both first-year and transfer students were invited to come forward and sign into the Catawba Registry during Opening Convocation 2014 on August 19. The Registry provides a record ofthe students' commitment and also a record that will be available as a future testimony to their membership in the Catawba community. Members of the Class of 2018 and others beginning their journey this year were the first to sign the book, which will have added to it each fall the names of those who will join the campus community. After signing, students were presented with a pin to wear as a symbol of their membership in the campus community and as a reminder of the values that have guided Catawba students for over 160 years. Next May, the 2015 Catawba graduates will sign their names into the Registry to signify their accomplishment.
