SAVE THE DATE: MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. in the Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
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.
Family members and guests are also invited to attend the Family Reception after New Student Convocation.
Family members not able to attend Convocation can watch the event.
Program details are available on our mobile guide for UF New Student Convocation via the GatorWay mobile application.
