Event Description

Convocation is the final step of Orientation and marks the start of your University career. At this gathering, faculty and senior administrators will welcome first-year and transfer students into the Suffolk community and formally open the academic year. All first-year and transfer students are invited to the Convocation ceremony and are expected to participate.

The University also welcomes your family and friends to witness this distinguished academic tradition. The fun continues afterwards when you, your family and friends can relax at a cookout on Roemer Plaza, just outside of our Samia Academic Center!

We’ve planned an exciting day of celebrations, make sure to wear your blue class of 2023 t-shirt for convocation and the class picture following! The class picture will be taken at 1:30 p.m. SHARP – Don’t be late!
