Each fall, Oregon State University welcomes the incoming class of students at the New Student Convocation ceremony. This year, we will also welcome the new students from last year in 2020. Convocation, which literally translates as "come together," is a ceremony in which we welcome all new students to campus.

We are pleased to welcome as our 2021 Convocation Keynote speaker Dr. Regan A. R. Gurung. 

Dr. Gurung is a social psychologist by training with research encompassing social, health, and pedagogical psychology. At Oregon State University, he is Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, Professor of Psychological Science, and Director of the General Psychology Program.

We're here to help every student succeed.
