New Student Convocation, a bookend to Commencement (aka. graduation), is the University of Florida’s official welcome for all new first-year students. This event celebrates the class of 2024’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.

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.
