Freshman Convocation is the bookend to Senior Graduation. It is the ceremony that welcomes YOU, the Class of 2028, to the Augusta University Family.

At this event, you will receive your official Class Pin and take your Class Photo with over 1,000 of your new classmates. After the ceremony, you are invited to have brunch with your future professors and campus professionals while exploring the many academic and social opportunities at AU.

After Brunch, feel free to “take care of business”, planning for Wednesday, August 14th - the official start of college. Visit the ROAR Store, Financial Aid and FIND YOUR CLASSES! Student leaders (who know the secrets of how to college) will be there to help you every step of the way.
