Students at the Thomas & Mack for UNLV Creates.

UNLV Creates

UNLV Creates is the annual academic convocation and welcome ceremony for all incoming students. This year Creates will take place on Friday, August 25, 2023, in the Cox Pavilion (for undergraduate students) & Thomas and Mack Strip View Pavilion (for graduate students).

About UNLV Creates

UNLV Creates is an important event in each new student’s journey when the UNLV community officially welcomes all incoming new students. During the ceremony, students will also be asked to make a pledge to graduate from UNLV. This is the only event where students will be given the honorary UNLV Cord to be worn at their graduation ceremony. Creates is serving, this year, as the culminating event for the inaugural UNLV Rebel Ready Week for our new undergraduate students.
