Convocation is the Newhouse School’s celebratory ceremony to individually recognize degree candidates. It is a joyful and significant event at which respectful attention to the speakers and ceremonious decorum are greatly appreciated. So as not to diminish from each graduate’s special moment, no items that may prove to be an annoyance are allowed inside the Dome (i.e., balloons, beach balls, etc.). Many Newhouse faculty and staff will be present to celebrate the occasion with graduates.
There will be a reception under tents on the Shaw Quad immediately following the ceremony (approximately 2:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m.) for graduates and their guests. Light refreshments will be served. Since our ceremony is scheduled during the typical lunch hour, the Dome’s concession windows will be open during Convocation.
