We're sorry, but the President's Picnic is sold out.
Freshman Convocation Tickets
Tickets to Freshman Convocation are complimentary. Entering freshmen and their friends and families will be given first priority in ordering tickets through September 1. After that date, ticketing will be expanded (via email invitations) to include the general UW community and tickets for everyone will be available on a first come, first served, basis.
Entering students receive an invitation to the convocation from President Michael K. Young in early August. The invitation contains an event code that allows them and their families to order complimentary tickets online via the link above. Students can order one student ticket for themselves and up to 4 guest tickets for friends and family.
Tickets for disability sections are also available. Seating is general admission. Purses and other personal items may be inspected upon entry.
