Cumberland Students Return for Fall Semester

8/28/2014
Students participate in orientation activities during the first week back on campus.  Classes officially began on Wednesday.

Opening Convocation marked the kick-off to another year at Cumberland University. During the 45-minute ceremony Dr. Harvill Eaton, President of the University, and members of the administration, faculty and staff leadership welcomed everyone back to campus.

The annual tradition is the official start to the new academic year and serves as a reminder of the real purpose of a college education – to prepare one for the rest of their life.

Following convocation students, faculty and staff sang the Alma Mater and signed a book with their intention of upholding the Cumberland Creed.
