To mark the beginning of the new academic year, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences hosts its annual Convocation ceremony. At this event, new undergraduate students and their families, NSU leadership, and faculty members join together in anticipation of a year filled with academic excellence and shared intellectual pursuit.
Convocation includes a keynote talk by a visiting author, whose book is selected for the First-Year Reading Program. Following the talk, students meet in faculty-led discussion groups, receive a copy of the Convocation speaker's selected book, and may have a chance to speak with the author.

During Convocation, new students are introduced to the annual academic theme. As part of our mission to prepare students for rich professional careers and active citizenship, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences at Nova Southeastern University frames co-curricular programs and experiences around this broad theme that unites our community in interdisciplinary exploration.
The 2013-2014 theme is "Good and Evil." To learn more, visit the academic theme page.
