TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY Undergraduate Convocation is a special welcoming program at Texas A&M for entering freshmen and transfer students on Sunday.

Formerly known as Freshman Convocation, Undergraduate Convocation marks new students’ official entry into the university’s community of scholars. Organizers say its purpose is to establish an academic connection between new undergraduate students and Texas A&M.

The program is designed, they add, to communicate to students their roles both as individuals who learn from others and who contribute to the vitality of the university. It also is intended to communicate the role of faculty members as scholars, teachers and fellow members of this community.

Undergraduate Convocation also provides students with an opportunity to gather with their classmates and join the academic community through a major campus event that parallels the importance and significance of the commencement ceremony that will mark their graduation.

Planners say the doors will open at 1 p.m. with the ceremony beginning promptly at 2 p.m. The ceremony is expected to last approximately one hour.

Free parking will be available at Reed Arena lots that can be accessed from Kimbrough Boulevard, Chandler Drive and Penberthy Street. Driving directions from Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio are available as well as a campus map. For more information about parking services, visit the Transportation Services website.
