New Student Convocation

Class of 2018

What is New Student Convocation?

Convocation is a time to celebrate. We celebrate the excitement of a new academic year as we welcome you.

Just as Commencement is a ceremony that marks the completion of study, New Student Convocation celebrates a student's entry into higher education. It is also one of the first events presenting the new class of students to the President, Texas Tech administrators and professors. The convocation speaker will offer inspiring words to set you on your new course of academic discovery.

Who attends?

All new students (freshman and transfers) are invited to attend New Student Convocation. The speakers for the evening will be President Nellis and Mark Tribus, a team building professional that has been working the Texas Tech Athletic program.

All Texas Tech faculty and staff are invited to greet and welcome the Class of 2018.
