Freshman Convocation

All Florida State University Panama City students, staff and faculty are invited to the Freshman Convocation ceremony on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in the Holley Academic Center lecture hall. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.  There is plenty of free parking on campus.

All newly admitted freshmen are required to attend Convocation (business casual attire is requested), which marks their entrance into the life and traditions of Florida State University Panama City. Family members and friends are also invited to attend. At Convocation, the dean, associate deans, faculty, staff, members of student government and student organizations will welcome new freshmen. The ceremony celebrates the history of Florida State University Panama City’s academic community and calls upon students to make a commitment to live by the values embodied in the torches on the University seal:  strength, skill and character. 

Immediately following Convocation, new freshmen and their guests are invited to join the deans, faculty, staff, and students for a reception. This is an opportunity to meet new classmates and interact with FSU Panama City’s deans and administrators in a fun and dynamic atmosphere as you become a Seminole of Florida State University Panama City.
