About this Event
The Freshman Convocation welcomes the incoming class of 2026 to Florida Atlantic University. From the welcome by FAU's administrators to the eloquent words of advice from the Distinguished Teacher of the Year, Freshman Convocation promises to be a memorable and exciting start for Florida Atlantic University undergraduate students.
The Freshman Convocation is the official entry into Florida Atlantic University. The Convocation formally welcomes freshmen to the beginning of their academic career and represents Florida Atlantic University's involvement and commitment to its newest members of the community of learners. As freshmen assemble, convocation introduces them to faculty, staff and administrators and connects them to one another and to the university.
Convocation is a ritual to signal the beginning of a student's college career in the same, significant manner in which the graduation commencement serves as a ritual marking the completion of study. More information here.
