New Student Convocation
Western kicks off the academic year with the official welcoming ceremony, New Student Convocation. This formal ceremony introduces new students to academic life at Western and is the first assembling of the new academic class. Our Convocation Ceremony marks a new beginning and is the first of the formal ceremonies that frame academic life at Western. The Western community looks forward to welcoming new students to the University and commemorating their first step on their academic journey here. For this year’s ceremony, all students new to Western’s campus are invited to attend, whether this is your first year at Western or your first time on Western’s campus.
