New Student Convocation

Taking its name from the Latin convocare, (meaning “to call/come together”) Convocation is the final step of orientation and marks the start of your University career. At this gathering, faculty and senior administrators 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 ceremony and are expected to participate. The University also welcomes families and friends to witness this distinguished academic tradition.
