Attend Rutgers New Student Convocation

Monday, August 31, 2020 | 12PM EST

Kick off your Rutgers experience by joining this must-attend event, New Student Convocation.

Convocation is a very special gathering of our newest Scarlet Knights which marks the beginning of your Rutgers career and student experience. We’ll celebrate your entry into the Rutgers community with special remarks by President Jonathan Holloway and Chancellor of Rutgers University–New Brunswick, Christopher J. Molloy. Learn about the Knights Call from student leaders and get the road map to success.

While this 30 minute event will be brief, it will officially welcome you to Rutgers and provide next steps for your first semester!
