The faculty again took vows of subscription to the Westminster Standards, and students orally expressed their affirmation of a "Covenant" adapted from one contained in the original plan of the Presbyterian Church's first theological seminary established at Princeton, N.J. in 1812:
"Deeply impressed with a sense of the importance of improving in knowledge, prudence, and piety, as I embark upon my course of study, I solemnly promise, in reliance on divine grace, that I will faithfully and diligently attend on all instructions of this Seminary, and that I will conscientiously and vigilantly observe all the rules and regulations specified in the plan for its instruction and government, so far as the same relate to the students; and that I will obey all the lawful requisitions, and readily yield to all the wholesome admonitions of the professors and trustees of the Seminary, while I shall continue a member of it."Nearly 50 students were present for the Convocation. Almost 30 more in the seminary's distance program and affiliated international extensions could not attend.

Classes began on Aug. 24 for the seminary's 29th year of theological education. The Fall Semester continues through Dec. 18th.
