The Journey Starts Here

Join fellow Auburn students to kick off the fall semester at Convocation 2024 on Sunday, Aug. 18 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 President Christopher B. Roberts, the Auburn University Marching Band, Aubie, the Auburn University Cheerleaders and Tiger Paws, athletics coaches, and other special guests. Wear game day attire, and remember that the clear bag policy will be enforced.

Convocation is open to all Auburn University students, and all first-year students (freshmen and transfer) are expected to attend. Jordan-Hare Stadium Gates 1-8 will open at 6 p.m.; the program will begin at 7 p.m. and last about an hour.

Convocation is just one part of The First 56, a large collection of events and opportunities for students during the first 56 days of the fall semester (Aug. 12 – Oct. 6), beginning with move-in. See the full list of First 56 events at
