Threat of thunderstorms moves ceremony to a live webinar format
Matriculation Weather Update | August 29, 2023
Dear Parents and Families,
We regret to share that due to tomorrow's weather forecast for thunderstorms, the Matriculation welcome will be held in a webinar format starting at 10 a.m. Remarks will be livestreamed so that you and your family can participate remotely.
Parents and families who are on campus are welcome to view the webinar in an auditorium in Barnum Hall (near the Jumbo statue), Cohen Auditorium (where the "After the Drop-off" panel was), and the nearby Alumnae Lounge.
The luncheon after Matriculation is moving indoors. Immediately following Matriculation, lunch will be available for students in Carmichael and Dewick-MacPhie Dining Centers. Unfortunately, the dining centers do not have capacity to accommodate parents and families.
Parents and families should plan to depart following Matriculation. Your students' Orientation Week kicks off after their lunch. Please stop by the Dowling Hall lobby for a Jumbo Farewell treat before you leave campus.
Note: The Continental Breakfast and the Jumbo Farewell event have been moved to the lobby of Dowling Hall. (A revised schedule follows below.)
Revised Schedule for Matriculation Day – August 30, 2023
9 a.m. – Continental Breakfast (Dowling Hall lobby)
- 10 a.m. – Matriculation welcome remarks (Live Webinar)
- 11:30 a.m. – Stop by Dowling Hall lobby for a Jumbo Farewell treat
Looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow!
Family Engagement, Student Life
