Convocation 2020 will be held in August in the Fieldhouse Arena.

Convocation is a campus-wide event that provides students an opportunity to celebrate the time-honored tradition of beginning a new academic year. Faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Trustee members process into the Fieldhouse Arena in full academic regalia. Convocation is incorporated into our new student orientation program called Transitions.


Convocation is coordinated by the Office of Student Life, a part of the Division of Student Affairs of Grand Valley State University.
