New Student Convocation, a bookend to Commencement (aka. graduation), is George Mason University’s official welcome for all new first-year students. As one of only a few times all members of the class will convene, this event celebrates the class of 2016’s entry into higher education and inducts them to a community of learners here at Mason. New Student Convocation articulates to our newest Patriots the institution’s mission and the expectations to which they will be held during their collegiate career here at the university. Our first-year students will not only realize their identity as a class but be reminded of the privilege they have to change the world for the better as a member of the Mason Nation.
Attendance at New Student Convocation is required of all first-year students. Family members of our new students are welcome to attend, and special seating arrangements will be provided.
