2014 New Student Convocation
Your Academic Journey Begins
New Student Convocation welcomes the incoming class of 2018 to Florida Atlantic University. From the colorful processional of faculty, staff, and administrators to the eloquent words of advice from the Distinguished Teacher of the Year, New Student Convocation promises to be a memorable and exciting start for Florida Atlantic University undergraduate students.
The New Student Convocation is a formal induction ceremony of the freshman class each fall semester into the academic community of Florida Atlantic University. Convocation is a ritual to signal the beginning of a student's college career in the same, significant manner in which the graduation commencement serves as a ritual marking the completion of study.
Highlights of New Student Convocation include:
- The ceremony is attended by the University President, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, College Deans, and many distinguished faculty and staff members.
- All freshmen receive a Cord at the end of the ceremony which can be worn at their Graduation.
- New Student Convocation provides early integration activities that help students bond with the FAU community.
The New Student Convocation is free and open to all first-time-in-college students only. No registration is required to attend.
