In the event of the threat of inclement weather, the Convocation storm plan will be enacted by 8:00 AM. The decision to move to the storm plan will be communicated via the Brown homepage, the Convocation website, a message will be recorded on (401) 863-3100, and a text will be sent to all students.
If the storm plan is enacted, the procession will be postponed and the ceremony will take place beginning at 4 PM as scheduled. New students should report directly to Pizzitola between 3:15 and 3:45 PM to be seated in the gymnasium. If weather allows, the procession will be rescheduled for later in the week so that new students have an opportunity to walk through the Van Wickle Gates.
The Convocation ceremony will be live streamed on the web at www.brown.edu/web/livestream which can be accessed from most mobile devices.
