UNLV Creates takes place on Welcome Day the Friday before Fall classes begin. 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. All new students are required to attend and faculty/staff are encouraged to participate.
The event will include an academic convocation in which the university community will welcome the incoming class. 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. Participation in this virtual event will qualify a student to receive the honorary UNLV Rebel Cord to be worn at their graduation ceremony.
This event will be a live virtual event and UNLV Creates begins at 9:00 am Questions regarding the UNLV Creates program should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
