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 will take place on Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, at 11 a.m. in the Liacouras Center and will be streamed live on this page. Watch a replay of the 2017 New Student Convocation below.
