Parents, family and other guests of students are extended members of the Georgia State community. As such, we’ve designed a special part of New Student Orientation to introduce you to the Panther family.
First-Year Convocation is a formal event that welcomes new students to campus. It is held the Sunday before classes begin in the fall semester. Faculty and staff attend in their regalia, and a noted speaker delivers the keynote address. This event is the kickoff for Panther Welcome, a calendar of events that gives new students a taste of campus life. The entire Panther family is encouraged to attend First-Year Convocation and RSVPs are being collected here.
Panther Welcome is the official Georgia State welcome program that introduces and integrates students, faculty and staff to the university community.
Information for Panther Welcome is available here.
