Opening Week: Convocation


The Convocation theme for 2014 is "Create your legacy. Make a difference." This event is the formal welcome for all students entering into the UMass Lowell academic community. It serves as the ceremonial start for our new students, just as Commencement serves as the ceremonial finish for our seniors. This required freshmen event is the highlight of Opening Week and the official launch of the academic year. Celebrate the official start of the academic year with faculty, staff, Chancellor Meehan and featured speaker Deanne Bell, a globe-trotting, power-tool-wielding engineer who designed opto-mechanics for military aircraft sensors before hosting TV programs on National Geographic, DIY Network and Discovery Channel.
