First-Year Student Convocation is the capstone event of Lion Pride Weekend. Convocation is a ceremony designed to officially welcome first-year students and families. You will meet the University President as well as Deans, Department Heads, members of the Faculty, Alumni, and Course Assistants. Our entire campus community participates to welcome you to the MSSU family.
Convocation is also an opportunity for us to tell you about our first-year student traditions! Bring your camera for the Medallion Ceremony and the traditional class photo at the Fred G. Hughes Football Stadium.
First-Year Student Convocation will be held on Sunday, the day before Fall classes begin, in Taylor Auditorium. Families and guests are welcome to attend. Dress for Convocation is business-casual. If you are a person with a disability and require accommodations for this event, please contact our office at 417.625.9731 at least 72 hours in advance.
