2023 Convocation

All new undergraduates and transfer students will attend the 2023 Convocation Ceremony. 

Convocation is one of two seminal ceremonies that bookend the academic year. Whereas Commencement celebrates graduates, Convocation celebrates new Oregon State University students - in Corvallis and online. Each fall, the university welcomes new students at the New Student Convocation ceremony. Convocation, which literally translates to "come together," is a ceremony in which we welcome OSU's new students to the university. Ecampus students may participate via the live stream.

All university senior leaders, faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend Convocation as guests. Cheer on OSU's incoming students from the sidewalk as they walk in the processional from the MU Quad down 26th Street, then find a seat in Gill Coliseum for the ceremony. Convocation will be streamed on
