Friday, August 27 - 11:30 a.m.

Convocation is a time-honored tradition that symbolizes the beginning of the academic year. Convocation is significant for incoming students as it marks a time of intellectual discovery and the beginning of their academic endeavors.

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to join us on Friday, August 27, at 11:30 a.m. in the Fieldhouse Arena on the Allendale campus. A live stream will be available on this site below.


Full Ceremony

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