New student opening ceremony

Join us to welcome all new undergraduates to the University of Nevada, Reno. This annual tradition includes President Johnson’s official Welcome, a keynote address from Dr. Sarah Cummings and the recitation of the Nevada Oath.

Faculty line-up starts at 9:30 a.m. in Lawlor Events Center. All faculty are welcome and encouraged to attend. Academic attire is requested but not required. For those of you who do not have academic attire,  there will be a number of robes available for your use in the faculty robing room.  

Pack Palooza will follow the ceremony, with check-in tables on the Knowledge Center lawn, and food, music and festivities on the University Quad. We hope you’ll join the Class of 2023 in celebrating the start of their college experience.
