Convocation 2022

The Journey Starts Here

Join fellow Auburn students to kick off the fall semester at Convocation 2022 on Monday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. in Jordan-Hare Stadium. This event will officially welcome you to the Auburn family as you experience a pep rally-like event featuring Auburn University President Dr. Chris Roberts, the Auburn University Marching Band, Aubie and the Auburn University Cheerleaders, athletic coaches, other special guests, and a closing fireworks show. Clear bag policy will be enforced and gameday attire is encouraged.

Convocation is open to all Auburn University students, and all first-year students (freshmen and transfer) are expected to attend. Jordan-Hare Stadium Gates 1-4 (northeast side) and Gates 14-18 (northwest side) will open at 6:30pm, and the program will begin at 7:00pm and end around 8:00pm.

Convocation is just one part of The First 56, a large collection of events and opportunities for students during the first fifty-six days of the fall (August 8 - October 2), beginning with move-in. To check out more First 56 events, go to to see the list of events on AUinvolve!
