Winter Convocation marks the opening of the spring semester.

Held the first or second day of spring semester classes, the event also celebrates the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and features a speaker or performance that ties the legacy of the civil rights movement to current events.

Organized by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, Winter Convocation prominently features Susquehanna’s students, who often provide music.
