Opening Convocation is an all-college event that welcomes the beginning of the new academic year. It is a formal academic ceremony that highlights the summer reading selection and provides an experiential learning opportunity for all of our students. Students, faculty, staff and friends of Ramapo College gather for Convocation to hear from a guest speaker that is associated with the First-Year Seminar’s summer reading selection. This event provides students with a hands on opportunity to establish a more direct connection to the summer reading.
