Convocation - Join our Traditions

 

Convocation symbolizes the official beginning of your academic career at the college and your acceptance into our community of learners. It is a time when we gather together to welcome new students into our community, and instill the value of your education and the significance of being part of a community of learners, where knowledge and scholarship are valued.

As part of Convocation, you will walk through the College gates. These gates are opened only twice a year. You will pass through at Convocation and again at Commencement when you conclude your academic career at MCLA. Faculty, staff, administrators, and College trustees in full academic regalia are there to show commitment to our new members of the MCLA community.

Convocation is a time to celebrate. We celebrate the excitement of a new academic year as we welcome you.
