The 2012 Convocation will be a new and unique event. UW Tacoma students, their families, community leaders, faculty, staff, alumni and other community members will process together from five different points in Tacoma to meet in the center of campus and celebrate the start of the new academic year.
A campus and community fair will also help introduce students to the campus and surrounding community. Everyone is welcome.
