The New Student Welcome Convocation marks the formal entrance of our incoming students into UC San Diego’s academic community.  As a bookend to Commencement, Convocation provides an opportunity for our newest Tritons to hear from campus leaders and engage with faculty at the start of their collegiate journey. 2023 celebrates the 18th year of this important campus tradition.

Students, please join us on RIMAC Field on Tuesday, September 26 at 4:30 p.m.
Note: doors open at 3:30 p.m.

This program is open to all first-year undergraduate students, transfer students, and incoming graduate students. We will have the opportunity to hear from the Chancellor, Executive Vice Chancellor, as well as your student government president to celebrate the start of your academic journey.

We look forward to seeing you there!
