What is Convocation?
Lux et Lex Walk
Tuesday, Aug. 29 | 4 p.m.
Together, the five F&M College Houses gather on Hartman Green and ceremonious walk beneath the metal archway inscribed with Lux et Lex - spanning Klauder-Apple Walkway.
The inscription translated as Light and Law captures the ethos of F&M, the campus community enthusiastically cheers and celebrates their future at F&M. The Class of 2027 will walk through the archway from Hartman Green toward Old Main, and upon the 2027 Commencement, the same cohort will pass under the arch in the opposite direction to complete the tradition. Walking in and out as Diplomats Forever.
