Convocation marks the formal beginning of the academic year and is a time when campus gathers to focus on SBU's mission and traditions. "An important tradition at SBU is our commitment to stay focused on our mission, which has remained consistent down through the years... that it has always been a Christ-centered institution," said SBU President C.
