New Student Convocation is a day dedicated to welcome and introduce new undergraduate students to UNC Charlotte and learn what it means to be a 49er. New Student Convocation will take place on Sunday, Aug. 20 at 2 p.m in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center. All new first-year and transfer students are invited. During the event, you will learn about campus traditions and the Noble Niner, hear from University leadership and our faculty keynote speaker, and enjoy a special performance by the Pride of Niner Nation Marching Band. After Convocation, be sure to explore the Student Organization Showcase and RecFest right outside.
