A Vassar Tradition
Convocation is the official opening of the academic year at Vassar. The college community gathers in the chapel to hear from the president of the college, the president of the Vassar Student Association, and a special speaker who is usually a member of the faculty.
The history of Vassar’s Convocation is available on the Vassar Encyclopedia.
