The second annual UNLV Creates will take place during Welcome Day on Friday, August 22, 2014. Faculty will highlight creativity, inspiration, and discovery in such a way that new students will be energized about the transformative opportunities of a college degree. The event will include an academic convocation in which the university community will welcome the incoming fall class of 2014. Within the ceremony, students will also be asked to make a pledge to graduate from UNLV. This tradition will exist as the signifier of the beginning of their college career. This is the only event where students will be given the honorary UNLV Rebel Cord that is to be worn four years later at their graduation ceremony.
