Wildcat Welcome


Your JWU academic career begins with our Convocation ceremony.

Business-casual attire is recommended.

Following convocation there will be a campus BBQ and family reception.  That evening campus will close to families and guests. Your parents are encouraged to attend the ceremony, and events following, then say goodbye — and your life at JWU begins!

At Convocation, you’ll proceed from the Academic Center to the Amphitheater, where you will be inducted into the university.

This is an OUTDOOR ceremony.
