Freshman Convocation


Complimentary Convocation tickets

Convocation stage

Tickets to Freshman Convocation are complimentary. All seating is general admission except for the disability sections, which may be selected when ordering (see seating map).  Students sit on the floor, in the first four rows closest to the floor, and in sections 11 and 12 (see seating map). Guest seating surrounds the students. 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony (10:15 a.m.), any student seats not already occupied will be made available to guests as well as students.

When ordering tickets you will need to provide the entering student’s student number.  In early August you will receive the President’s invitation, which will include an event code.  That code may be used in place of the student’s student number. Students can order one student ticket for themselves and up to 4 guest tickets for friends and family.

Disability seating

Tickets for disability seating (wheelchair, mobility impaired, or American Sign Language) are available and can be reserved through the ticket ordering form.
