Chico State students aren't the only ones getting a big wildcat welcome this week. The university's president addressed faculty and some local officials at Thursday's convocation, with some exciting announcements and a candid look at areas of improvement for the new school year. 

President Hutchinson began the convocation with a moment of silence, as the university acknowledged the impact of the recent wildfires. Hutchinson also spoke to the importance of free speech on campus during a time when "Americans are more polarized than ever." She said a faculty learning community will be formed to nurture free expression on campus.

Chico mayor Sean Morgan and Chief of Police Mike O' Brien were among the invited guests of honor. The mayor, a chico graduate himself, pointed a finger at state legislators, who he said are failing to acknowledge the rising cost of being a student.

Chico state welcomes 2800 incoming freshmen this year. We wish them all best of luck with the new semester.
