Sociology professor Keith Farrington gives the 2017 convocation address.

Whitman's 2018 Convocation was held Friday, August 24, 2018 at 4:30 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.
