Convocation FAQ

What is LU Stages?

LU Stages is the department responsible for Convocation and 
Campus Community, as well as other spiritually focused
 events on campus.


Convocation

 

When is Convocation? And where?

Convocation is held each Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 AM 
in the Vines Center. Attendance is required for all on-campus,
 residential students.

What is the student attendance policy?

Attendance at Convocation is a mutually agreed upon
 expectation, that is clearly communicated to all applicants who
 desire to be a residential, undergraduate student at Liberty
 University. Students have one excused absence for a semester that
 they can utilize to miss a particular Convocation of their choosing.
These excused absences must be coordinated with the Resident
 Assistant (RA) in advance. Seating for Convocation is arranged 
by residence halls. As an additional campus security measure, 
all persons attending Convocation services go through a metal
 detector and bag check. Doors open at 9:30 AM to allow time for these safety checks. The general public is typically permitted to
attend with proper ID and security screenings at a
designated entry gate.

How can I recommend a guest speaker for Convocation?

Students who would like to recommend a guest speaker for
 Convocation may do so by emailing
convocation@liberty.edu.

 Additionally, the student body is invited to participate in an annual
 survey where they can express their recommendations.

May I meet the Convocation guest?

The schedule for each Convocation guest varies from speaker
to speaker, but oftentimes, guests will agree to participate in
book signings, meet and greets, classroom lectures, or Q&A
 sessions, where students have the opportunity to meet them.
All opportunities of this nature are communicated during Convocation or via @LibertyOSD on Facebook and Instagram.

How can I know who is coming to speak in Convocation?

Convocation guests are announced prior to each semester
 through LU’s media department and through OSD’s social media
outlets. “Like” and “Follow” @LibertyOSD on Facebook and Instagram to be the first to hear about upcoming Convocation guests. If there are any changes or additions to that line-up throughout the semester, updates can be found on those pages, as well as announced from the Convocation stage.


Campus Community

 

What is Campus Community? And when is it?

Campus Community is a weekly worship service held each 
Wednesday night during the fall and spring semesters at 7:00 PM in the Vines Center. Following this weekly worship service,
Community Groups meet together formally for prayer and
 discussion in the residence halls or in a commuter group setting. Speakers for Campus Community vary from week to week and are a combination of both external guests to the University and 
internal voices that are familiar to the student body.

Is Campus Community required?

No, attendance at Campus Community is not required
