Webcast from Meany Hall

New Student Convocation is one of only two occasions where the University president, the Board of Regents, the deans of the 16 schools and colleges and the faculty gather in a formal academic setting focused on students. The other, of course, is the graduation ceremony, Commencement. These two events are the seminal “bookend” events of a college career.

At New Student Convocation you will:

  • Meet your classmates from around the world
  • Get started on the path to academic success
  • Get tips on navigating student life.
  • Join the Husky community
  • Be part of the official class photo (undergrads and transfers only)
