What is New Student Convocation?

Student Convocation serves as your induction into the college community. This celebration is designed specifically for new members of the John Jay College community and symbolically represents the start of a new academic journey. At Convocation, faculty, students and administrators officially welcome new students to the community.

Why should I go to Convocation?

This experience is very important as students begin their college careers. All new students are strongly encouraged to attend. The ceremony is an important step for students to recognize their entrance into the college community. It also serves as a "bookend" to each student's collegiate experience, with convocation as the opening ceremony and commencement as the final goal.

Should transfer students attend New Student Convocation?

Absolutely! New Student Convocation is designed for ALL new undergraduate students - including freshmen and transfer students.

Is there a cost to attend the event?
