Welcoming party for new UC students

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The official welcoming party is Friday for new students at the University of Cincinnati.

The new student convocation will be held inside Fifth Third Arena at 10 a.m. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for parents. Students may begin lining up at the Armory Fieldhouse at that time too. All students must be in line by 9 a.m.

New students can expect to hear from UC Interim President, Provost Dr. Santa Ono. Ono was appointed by the board of trustees after former president Dr. Gregory Williams unexpectedly resigned earlier this week citing personal reasons.

Parking is complementary if you exit the garages by 4 p.m. UC asks that you use one of the following parking garages; Calhoun Garage, Campus Green Garage, CCM Garage, Corry Garage, University Avenue Garage, Woodside Garage.

Classes begin Monday as UC starts its fall semester.
