What is Convocation?

Expect plenty of pomp and circumstance at this annual ceremony to welcome the university's newest incoming class. President Bruce Herrald, Provost Barry Butler (the university's chief academic officer), and a student representative of the Class of 2020 will speak, and in keeping with tradition, officials will ring the Old Capitol bell and a student choral group will perform the Old Gold Hymn. The event is outside of Old Capitol, on the east lawn of the Pentacrest, so wear plenty of sunscreen!

Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in representing the Class of 2020 at Convocation. Spencer Franke has been selected to welcome your class and we look forward to hearing his welcoming words.
