New Student and Family Convocation

August 20, 2022

The Beginning of a College Career

Just as Commencement denotes the completion of an academic degree, New Student and Family Convocation signifies the beginning of a college career. These rituals “bookend” the beginning and end of your student’s journey.

Convocation is the beginning of making SDSU your student’s new home. The ceremony also imparts some of the university’s traditions and lays out the values of scholarship, citizenship and leadership expected of students.

All new first-year (commuter and residential), transfer and graduate students and their families are strongly encouraged to participate in this milestone event.
