Move-In Day and Matriculation

Newell Field House
University-Wide Event

St. Lawrence University welcomes first-year and returning students to campus for the 22-23 academic year.

Matriculation is a long-standing St. Lawrence tradition to welcome our new students. President Kathryn Morris and members of the University’s senior staff address new students; the Reverend Shaun Whitehead, University Chaplain, shares a blessing and pledge; the school songs are sung, and we honor the Laurentians who gave their name to our First-Year Program Colleges as we celebrate our newest members of the St. Lawrence community. Matriculation is also the moment that parents and students say goodbye on Move-In Sunday. We encourage you to plan big hugs before joining us for the ceremony.
