Matriculation Ceremony and Welcome Events

Event


Adelphi University invites and encourages parents to attend the Matriculation Ceremony.

All freshmen must attend, and we certainly encourage parents to also join us for this ceremony. Parents in previous years have commented on how special this program is, and we look forward to celebrating with our new students and families on Sunday, August 30. Welcome students of the Class of 2019!

Matriculation Ceremony and Parent Orientation

Parents are invited and encouraged to attend the time-honored Matriculation Ceremony during which students are formally welcomed as scholars into the Adelphi Community. Members of Adelphi’s Board of Trustees, as well as the University’s faculty, process in academic attire, lead the distinguished procession, and then welcome the freshman class during this ceremonial occasion. Students are also welcomed by current upper class leaders. 

In the past, keynote speakers included eminent alumni, renowned members of the community, as well as national and global leaders. Also during this ceremony, on behalf of the new student body, an entering freshman is presented with the University’s Honor Code. Parents have remarked that this is truly an impressive event and that they felt honored and pleased to attend.

Matriculation reflects the ceremonial entrance of the student into the academic community in a similar formal tradition that celebrates the graduate during Commencement.


Meet and Greet Information Session
