Panther Convocation

Panther Convocation is a Florida International University tradition that welcomes new students, as well as their friends and family, as they embark on their college journey. The formal ceremony is hosted by the FIU President, our college deans, and other distinguished faculty and staff.

This memorable experience marks students' introduction to their college career, and this year is made even more special because the university is celebrating 50 years since opening its doors to students in 1972. As the university looks onward to The Next Fifty, we welcome you to join us and ignite your Panther spirit.
