UNLV CREATES Fall 2016 Live stream replay

The fourth annual UNLV Creates will take place during Welcome Day on Friday, August 26, 2016. UNLV Creates is the annual academic welcoming ceremony which provides for new students and their families a formal and engaging event that welcomes them to the university, educates them about the transformative opportunities of a college degree, and highlights faculty creativity, inspiration, and discovery.

The event will include an academic convocation in which the university community will welcome the incoming fall class of 2016. During the ceremony, students will also be asked to make a pledge to graduate from UNLV. This tradition signifies the beginning of their college career. This is the only event where students will be given the honorary UNLV Rebel Cord to be worn at their graduation ceremony.
