What is Convocation?

Convocation is an annual ceremony and college tradition of welcoming first-year students to the University of Washington Bothell. We are very excited to have you join our community at UW Bothell and look forward to introducing you to campus at this student-only event.

Consider this the First Day:

  • of your Husky experience;
  • to connect with your UW Bothell Community;
  • to set yourself up for success.

Convocation is the day for new students to make new friends, connect with faculty, and celebrate your first day as a UW Bothell Husky!
