New Student Convocation History

Just as Commencement is a ceremony that marks the completion of study, New Student Convocation celebrates a student's entry into higher education.

Initiated in 1994 and open to all incoming undergraduate (freshman and transfers) students, their parents, and family members, New Student Convocation serves as the Institute's official welcome to the campus community.

In addition, New Student Convocation will inspire our students to work to reach their highest potential while at Tech, acquaint new students with Georgia Tech's mission and traditions, and build camaraderie amongst the newest class of students.

Students and guests are asked to dress appropriately in smart casual attire; sneakers and workout attire are not recommended.
