To kick off your St. John's experience and begin this academic year in celebration of the 150th anniversary, the new student convocation is a time-honored tradition introducing all incoming students to the University's vibrant learning community while highlighting our strong academic culture and Catholic and Vincentian identity which have made St. John's a life-changing place for 150 years.

Programming will include remarks from President Conrado "Bobby" Gempesaw, Provost Simon G. Møller, Rev. Bernard M. Tracey, C.M., St. John's deans and students. Join us with family and friends and connect with fellow Johnnies as we celebrate the start of your St. John's journey.
