Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Convocation is a calling or coming together of an entire community in recognition of student success and scholarly achievement. For seniors, it is a time of culmination and fruition; for juniors, it is a time of solidification; for sophomores, it is a time of exploration; for freshmen, it is a time of transition. It is appropriate that as a community, we come together to remind ourselves of our shared responsibility to our students and their pursuit of academic excellence. This year’s ceremony will be broadcast live on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 1:30 PM EDT and will feature President Mark C. Anarumo as our keynote speaker.
