Twice a year, in the fall and spring, the college community gathers in the Chapel to hear from the president of the college, the president of the Vassar Student Association, and a special speaker who is usually a member of the faculty. The faculty and seniors dress in their academic robes. Fall Convocation is the official opening of the academic year at Vassar. Following the event a photograph is taken of the freshman class, and following Spring Convocation, the senior class is photographed.

Immediately following Convocation, the official class photograph of all incoming students will be taken. This will be the photograph used for the yearbook. This special occasion marks the sixth year of this wonderful and successful tradition at Vassar. We ask your support in having 100% participation. Another class photograph will be taken four years from now, when you graduate.
