Convocation is sold out. You can still claim tickets for the livestream viewing area in Bunker. Get tickets to the overflow area here.
Just like graduation
symbolizes the end of a student’s university experience, Convocation marks the
beginning of a student’s academic career at Mines. This is an opportunity for
you and your family to participate in your first official event as an
Oredigger. You will hear from faculty, alumni and fellow students about their
Mines experience and learn about the rich traditions of our university.
Tickets are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis for guests seated in Lockridge Arena. Until Lockridge Arena reaches capacity, up to two guest tickets per new Oredigger are available. Once seats for Lockridge Arena are sold out, additional guest tickets will be made available for the overflow viewing area in Bunker Auditorium. The event will be live streamed on the Mines YouTube channel for out-of-town guests.
New students do not need a ticket for entry into Lockridge Arena. Students will assemble on Stratton Commons at 3:15 p.m. to lineup for the processional into the arena. Students should plan to wear their new t-shirt with the Mines fight song on the back given to them at Fall Kickoff check-in.
Parking on campus is free on Convocation day. Children under the age of 2 do not require a ticket.
All family and friends are invited to join us at the welcome barbecue on Kafadar Commons immediately following Convocation at 5 p.m. Get your free tickets to the BBQ here to help us plan.
