Student Affairs is preparing to officially welcome first year students to the Auburn Family with Convocation 2017. Auburn University's eighth annual Convocation marks the beginning of first-year students' college careers. Convocation will connect new students with their university, recognizing the acceptance of their offer to join us on the Loveliest Village on the Plains. Convocation is set for Sunday, Aug. 20 at 4:30 p.m. in Auburn Arena.

To ensure Convocation is a success, student leaders and staff from a variety of student organizations and campus departments are invited to sign up as volunteers. Volunteers are needed to assist with ushering students into their assigned section and assisting with the Post-Convocation Celebration. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for one of two shifts available. Shift times are 3-5:30 p.m. for setup and the duration of the event, and 5-7:30 p.m. for the Post-Convocation Celebration and clean up. 

Those who are able to volunteer should sign up online by Aug. 11 at noon.
