Come Celebrate Fall 2013 New Student Convocation!
Convocation is an opportunity to hear from our University President, Dr. Dana L. Gibson as well as meet fellow students and faculty.
This event is the official welcome for all new students entering into the Sam Houston State University academic community. It serves as the ceremonial start for our new students, just as Commencement serves as the ceremonial finish for our seniors. This recommended freshmen event is the highlight of Welcome Week and the official launch of the academic year. Please note that you will attend one of two convocation sessions on August 24th based when you attend the summer orientations.
For questions, please call the First-Year Experience office at (936) 294-3422.
