New Student Convocation
Every August, the University of South Carolina invites the new academic class to attend New Student Convocation, a ceremony commemorating your inclusion as a new student at the university.
The Convocation Ceremony
Convocation is defined as the coming together of the members of a group — a formal assemblage. Our new student convocation marks a new beginning and a special time for our faculty and students. Convocation consists of remarks from the University President, the Student Body President, the Michael J. Mungo Distinguished Professor of the Year; and the provost, who is the university’s chief academic officer.
The 2020 New Student Convocation will be virtual. Please join us on Wednesday, August 19 at 11 a.m. for the live stream of the ceremony.
