New Student Convocation

Welcome to Warhawk Nation!

We look forward to seeing you at New Undergraduate Student Convocation 2023 on Friday, August 18.

While a convocation is a formal gathering, AUM’s New Student Convocation has a lot of informal (and fun!) elements designed to welcome you to — and show you what it means to be a part of — Warhawk Nation.

Students will meet in the Taylor Center at 9:30 a.m. for a procession to the Athletic Complex, where the Convocation ceremony and other activities will start at 10 a.m.
