Each year La Roche University officially welcomes its new freshman class at Academic Convocation. The event, held in the Kerr Fitness & Sports Center, is part of Freshman Orientation and features a convocation address speaker, a faculty address and a candle-lighting ceremony.

New students will accept the La Roche Honor Code, hear from Student Government Association representatives, and gather with faculty and staff to officially become part of the La Roche community.
