New Student Convocation, a bookend to Commencement (aka. graduation), is the University of Florida’s official welcome for all new first-year students. As the one and only time all members of the class will convene, this event celebrates the class of 2023’s entry into higher education and inducts them to a community of learners here at the University of Florida. New Student Convocation articulates to our newest Gators the institution’s mission and the expectations to which they will be held during their collegiate career here at the University of Florida. 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 Gator Nation.

To learn more about Convocation please visit the New Student & Family Guide via the GatorWay mobile application.

Family members not able to attend Convocation can watch the event via live stream.

ATTENDANCE AT NEW STUDENT CONVOCATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL SUMMER B AND FALL ADMITTED FIRST YEAR STUDENTS. This includes students who recently graduated from high school with their AA degree.
