students with cords
Highlights of the Freshman Convocation
The ceremony is attended by the University President, Provost, College Deans, and many distinguished faculty and staff members.
 
All freshmen in attendance will receive a blue and silver academic cord at the end of the ceremony. The cord represents a commitment to achieving academic excellence and success and the beginning of a life-long connection to Florida Atlantic University. Freshmen will wear their cord at their graduation four years from now.
 
The Freshman Convocation provides early integration activities that help students bond with the FAU community.
