Convocations Calendar Fall 2020

Welcome back, everyone! I hope this finds you well. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, fall semester convocations will be offered virtually as live events in webinar format. Instructions for signing up for speaker convocations will be emailed a few days prior to the event.

As has been our tradition, convocations will continue to happen on Thursdays; however, please note that the time has shifted to the early evening: the new convocation time slot is 7 – 8 p.m. (Eastern Time).

If you were unable to attend a live convocation, an online video will be made available for later viewing. Please check for details later.

This fall term Berea students will not be required to attend convocations and attendance will not affect students’ GPA. However, we’d like to strongly encourage students to attend convocations for the educational experience and cultural enrichment. Some instructors may require students to attend convocations for credit in their courses.

Have a safe and healthy fall semester 2020!

Dr. Thomas Ahrens, Director of Convocations
