Freshman Convocation 2022

Tuesday, August 16, 2022

Summerville Campus: JSAC Field and Grove

10 a.m. - 12 Noon

(Check-in starts at 8:30 a.m.)

Freshman Convocation is the bookend to Senior Graduation. It is the ceremony that welcomes YOU, the Class of 2026, to the Augusta University Family.

At this event, you will receive your official Class Pin, Class T-shirt, and take your Class Photo with over 1,000 of your new classmates. After the ceremony, you are invited to "Do Brunch" with your future professors and campus professionals while exploring the many academic and social opportunities at AU.

After Brunch, feel free to "take care of business", planning for Wednesday, August 17 - the official start of college. Visit the JAG Bookstore, Financial Aid and FIND YOUR CLASSES! Student leaders (who know the secrets of how to college) will be there to help you every step of the way.
