Welcoming new students to Worcester State University.
What is Convocation?
Worcester State University’s Academic Convocation officially welcomes new students into our academic community and fosters a sense of belonging. Convocation is literally a “calling together” of all new students. It is a formal academic ceremony that, together with Commencement, will serve as bookends to your time here at Worcester State. Convocation serves to officially welcome you to the academic core of your university experience. We hope that this event will serve as an opportunity to gain an appreciation for the university’s values and traditions.
Convocation is also designed to inspire your commitment to excellence within an academic community of students, faculty, and staff. You will be introduced at this time to some of the many individuals here to support your learning and intellectual development.
Convocation for the 2022-23 academic year is scheduled on Tuesday September 6.
