Convocation: Your Official Welcome

Event Date: Monday, August 22, 2022
Event Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Adena Hall Gymnasium

Convocation is the official welcome event at Ohio State for first-year students. Students hear from university leaders, faculty, administrators, and special guests, and are introduced to some time-honored university traditions. Convocation is the first of many memorable moments for you at Ohio State and the only time prior to graduation that the entire class is gathered.

Live streaming of the President's Convocation on the Columbus campus begins at 10:30 a.m.

Following the live-streamed portion of the event, there will be a brief program in the gym. Then students will participate in the traditional "Bridge Walk" and enjoy a provided lunch.
