All new students are formally enrolled as members of the Cabrini College community at Matriculation. The ceremony takes place at the beginning of the academic year each August.
Parents, families, and guests are cordially invited to attend this memorable event.
Welcoming Mass precedes Matriculation at 3:15PM in the Dixon Center.
What is Matriculation? Matriculation is an old tradition, originating at Oxford and Cambridge Universities in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and marking the moment when students signed the register of the college or university and enrolled in the institution.
The ceremony signaled the joint commitment of the institution to the enrolling student and of the student to the mission and culture of the new school.
Matriculation served then and continues to serve today as the ritual counterpart to the Commencement Ceremony students will experience at the end of their time at Cabrini.
Following in the grand tradition of Matriculation, Cabrini College invites family and friends to bear witness to its introduction of the entering class and its presentation of the official College register in which entering students will sign their names.
Campus Picnic on The CommonsAt the conclusion of the ceremony, everyone is invited to a picnic on The Commons, between Grace Hall and the Mansion.
