2015 New Student Welcome Convocation and Dinner

Monday, September 21, 5:00 p.m.


The 2015 New Student Welcome Convocation and Dinner is the top event of Welcome Week for all new students. As the inaugural academic event of the year, it marks your formal entrance into the UC San Diego academic community. Each year, over 5,000 new students attend the convocation and dinner with their colleges. Dinner with fellow new students and faculty is served on RIMAC Field immediately after the ceremony. To cover each student’s meal expense, $10 will be automatically deducted from the Dining Dollar account of all new freshmen and transfer students living on campus with a dining plan.

The weather can quickly cool down in the evening with the marine layer. Please bring a light sweater or jacket to the event.

At the conclusion of the convocation program, students are invited to eat dinner and meet with faculty at the rear of RIMAC field.
