Sophomore Convocation at Frost Amphitheater
September 19, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

We are thrilled to share that it is now possible for us to do a sophomore convocation!  President Marc Tessier-Lavigne will welcome sophomores and their families to Stanford at the 1st Sophomore Opening Convocation Ceremony, the formal inauguration of the academic year. Together with their classmates, students will participate in celebrating the beginning of the year at this time-honored tradition, held this year in Frost Amphitheater. We invite all families to share this experience with your student by watching the Convocation Ceremony with us via livestream (more info soon!). For family members visiting campus on this day, each new student may invite up to two guests to join us at this in-person event outdoors. Guests must adhere to Stanford's Visitor Policy and reserve tickets in advance. More soon! Please note that this event is subject to change, due to health and safety considerations related to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding.
