Convocation 2019

Aug 28, 2019
11:00 am–12:00 pm
at Uhden Chapel, GNU Campus

Great Northern University invites all friends and members of the GNU community to our second-annual Convocation ceremony.

Convocation is one of GNU's important academic traditions. Whereas Commencement marks the end of the academic year, and the culmination of the academic journey for graduates, Convocation marks the beginning of the academic year, as well as the beginning of the academic journey for incoming students. 

Convocation at GNU is comparable in formality to Commencement; the Faculty, Officers, and Board of Trustees of the university will proceed in full regalia, and there will be the singing of hymns, an address to the students by the university president, prayer over the student body and the forthcoming school year, and a benediction. 

We hope to see friends, family, and ministry partners there to help us welcome our students into the new academic year!
