Convocation: Your Official Welcome

Monday, August 22, at 10:30 a.m. 

Convocation is the official welcome event at Ohio State for first-year students. Students hear from university leaders, faculty, administrators, and special guests, and are introduced to some time-honored university traditions. Convocation is the first of many memorable moments for you at Ohio State and the only time prior to graduation that the entire class is gathered.
