Students will officially matriculate at the 186th Convocation ceremony.
The ceremony—which will be held rain or shine—will take place on the Beachem Portico on the north side of Pennsylvania Hall at 4 p.m. After a welcome from Jessica Hubert '18 and an address from English Prof. McKinley Melton, the class will proceed through historic Pennsylvania Hall, marking their first steps as members of the Gettysburg College community.
The ceremony will be livestreamed and will have an alternate viewing location on campus in the College Union Building ballroom. In case of inclement weather, students and their families are encouraged to bring appropriate rain gear.
