Opening Convocation

Welcome to the Class of 2027!

We came together as a campus community to embark on the upcoming 2023-24 academic year during Opening Convocation 2023, which took place at Shove Memorial Chapel Mon., Aug. 28, at 9 a.m.

Opening Convocation heralds in Colorado College’s 149th academic year and serves as the First Mondays presentation for Block 1. This year’s inspiring honorary degree recipients were:

  • Patience Kabwasa, Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa
  • John Weiss ’78, P’22, Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa.

Students and faculty convened for the first day of classes following Opening Convocation.
