The Auburn University Division of Student Affairs formally welcomed more than 4,500 first-year students to the Auburn Family at 2017 Convocation.


Now in its eighth year, Convocation connects students with their university and celebrates the entrance of first-year students at Auburn.


The annual ceremony was held in the Auburn Arena and featured speakers from across campus including President Steven Leath. Students learned more about the values and expectations of the Auburn Creed, and received their class T-shirt colored for their enrolled college.


Convocation concluded with a celebration dinner outside the arena.
