Convocation Ceremony 2023

Welcoming New Beginnings: University of Washington’s New Student Convocation

The University of Washington is in full prep to host its annual New Student Convocation on Sunday, September 24th, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The esteemed Alaska Airlines Arena will be the backdrop for this auspicious event.

The New Student Convocation is a remarkable assembly where the entire university leadership, including President Cauce, regents, deans, senior university leaders, and faculty members, converges with the freshest faces on campus – the new students. This ceremonious event stands as one of the two grand occasions throughout the academic year where this diverse array of individuals comes together in a formal academic setting. The other momentous gathering is the Commencement, where the students reap the rewards of their dedication and hard work.

Tickets for the convocation ceremony are now on sale. Students who wish to purchase tickets for the event can visit the link below.
