What is New Student Convocation?
New Student Convocation serves as your induction into the college community. This event is designed specifically for new members of John Jay College and symbolically represents the start of a new academic journey. At Convocation, faculty, students and administrators will officially welcome new students to the community.
Why should I go to Convocation?
This experience is very important as students begin their college careers, and all new students are strongly encouraged to attend (freshmen and transfer students). The ceremony is an important step as students 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.
