Sandra Ekstrand, assistant professor of economics, accounting and business administration and the 2007 Great Teacher, will present the address, 'Revisiting Oz.'
New students will then have the opportunity to sign the Matriculation Book, making them official members of the Class of 2011.
Family and guests are welcome to attend.
Following the ceremony, there will be a cookie and punch reception in the Peterson Field House.
