Whitman's 2017 Convocation is scheduled for Friday August 25, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. in Cordiner Hall.

The word "Convocation" arises from the Latin "con" meaning "together" and "vocare" meaning "to call." The Whitman College Convocation ceremony is a calling together of everyone on campus - students, parents, faculty, and staff - to mark the beginning of the next academic cycle, and to welcome the incoming class of first year students into our community.
