Convocation at Temple University is a tradition that occurs annually during Welcome Week. This formal ceremony, which follows school and college meetings, celebrates the arrival of the new class of undergraduate students, freshmen and transfers. Various university leaders will welcome the new class and mark the beginning of students' academic journey.

Convocation took place on Friday, August 26, 2016, at 11 a.m. in the Liacouras Center. Watch a video of the event below.
