Convocation: Your Official Welcome

Monday, August 23, 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.

To accommodate as many new Buckeyes as possible, we'll also be streaming the event live this year.
