MSU Denver


Welcome to the Roadrunner Family!

Convocation is the beginning of a Roadrunner’s journey. This kick-off event serves as a “bookend” to each student’s academic journey, with Convocation: Roadrunner Rally as the opening ceremony and commencement as the final goal. The ceremony remarks will include a welcome from MSU Denver President, Dr. Janine Davidson, and from a keynote speaker. This is an opportunity for incoming students to come together for their first official university event.
