Convocation and Ram Spirit Walk

4 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Aug. 22, 2022

After New Student Convocation wraps up in Monroe Park, it's time for a crowd-favorite Weeks of Welcome tradition! The Class of 2026, incoming transfer students and The Peppas spirit band will march the streets of Richmond for the Ram Spirit Walk while fellow students, alumni and community members cheer them on from the sidelines. The walk ends back in Monroe Park where everyone comes together for a celebratory cookout.

Starting in Monroe Park, students will take a right on Franklin Street, a right on Belvidere Street, a right on Main Street and right on Linden Street, ending on Floyd Avenue. Students are encouraged to touch the Ram Horns as they make their way past the University Student Commons.

Can't make it in person? Join the festivities remotely by watching the Convocation and Ram Spirit Walk livestream on the VCU Alumni Facebook page.

Let us know you're coming.

We’re looking for an energetic graduate to host this year’s pep rally. Nominate a friend — or yourself — to rev up the Class of 2026 by contacting Allison Toney, director, student and alumni engagement.
