Opening Convocation is the formal introduction of faculty to the incoming class of students. The ceremony begins with the procession of faculty in their academic regalia. Comments will be made by the Provost, followed by the keynote address by
President, Dr. Nido Qubein. With the Opening Convocation ceremony, the incoming class begins an exciting educational venture – a learning process that occurs in and beyond the classroom – culminating in the completion of degree requirements and the traditional Commencement ceremony.
*Each student is allowed ONE ticket for a parent/guest. Other guests will be able to view a live broadcast of the Convocation Ceremony from several venues on campus. Students should pick up their guest ticket on Saturday, August 17th from the University Center or Slane Center concierge desks.
