Academic Convocation

Emmanuel celebrates the start of each academic year with an Academic Convocation ceremony, which represents many new beginnings—new academic pursuits, new friendships and new opportunities for students to grow as leaders and ethical decision makers. The ceremony also recognizes first-year students as the newest members of the Emmanuel community as well as the status of seniors as they don their caps and gowns for the first time.
