The incoming class is invited to enjoy refreshments provided by the American University Alumni Association and get the “official” Class of 2023 T-shirt to wear for the convocation processional. Bagpipers will lead AU's new students from the quad to Bender Arena at approximately 10:30 am. Their AU academic journey begins as they pass through Glover Gate, rub the talons on the eagle statue, and enter Bender Arena to the cheers from faculty and staff.
