Your life at Temple University begins with your attendance at a required event called Convocation. It is traditionally a formal ceremony featuring faculty, staff and administrators, who process in cap and gown into the Liacouras Center, and university leaders, who offer words of wisdom and encouragement. 

This year, due to the pandemic and public health protocols, your welcome to campus features an asynchronous, week-long virtual experience on TUportal. Students will receive more details and instructions on how to access the virtual Convocation experience. All new undergraduate students are required to participate in the daily events, which begin on Friday, Aug. 21.
