The Freshman Convocation is the official beginning of first-time-in-college students' entry into Florida Atlantic University. The Convocation formally welcomes freshmen to the beginning of their academic career and represents Florida Atlantic University's involvement and commitment to its newest members of the community of learners. As freshmen assemble together with faculty, staff, and administrators, they gain a sense of identity that connects them to one another and to the university. The Freshman Convocation is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
