Academic Convocation typically takes place the first Thursday of the fall semester at 5:00pm in the University Theater. This is the formal beginning to the school year for students, staff, faculty and administrators. The assembly is a time when faculty and staff are recognized for their committment to our Lasallian heritage and accomplishments in their fields. Students are recognized during this time as well. Awards for the standout summer Orientation leaders are given, and the Lasallian Fellows are announced. Attendance is required for all first-year students.
