Convocation, from the Latin convocare, can be translated as a "calling together", and defined as a "ceremonial assembly of members of a college or university". Wilson College has a long-standing tradition of calling together her members each year, at the beginning of the fall semester. Held in the Alumnae Chapel, Thomson Hall, faculty, students, staff and administrators are all called to participate in this important academic event.
