At Keuka College

Academic Convocation

Academic Convocation serves as an official welcome for incoming students into our academic community and fosters a sense of belonging at Keuka College. 

This annual ceremony brings together administrators, faculty, and students to commemorate the start of the academic year, where words of wisdom and encouragement are delivered by the reigning Professor of the Year, College President, and other College speakers. Learn more about Academic Convocation, and how it represents many new beginnings—new academic pursuits, new friendships, and new opportunities for students to grow as leaders and ethical decision-makers. The ceremony also recognizes first-year students and transfer students as the newest members of the Keuka College community.
