First-Year Convocation is the first formal event of each academic year and serves as the official welcome for all new students entering SUNY Buffalo State.
Convocation, from the Latin words meaning "to call together," has been used to describe a ceremonial assembly of members of a college since the fifteenth century. T
he event provides first-year students with the opportunity to hear from Buffalo State's administration, as well as meet fellow classmates and faculty. It signifies the beginning of a student's journey into the world of academia, just as Commencement observes the completion of studies at Buffalo State for our seniors.
