New students become official members of the Boston University community during their Matriculation ceremony, held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 2, 2012 at Agganis Arena.
Students are encouraged to walk down to Matriculation with their classmates. The entire class walks down to the ceremony together to symbolize the idea of “One BU.”

If you have any questions, please ask your RAs. See you on Sunday!
Parents and Matriculation
Parents are welcome to join us for Matriculation. We encourage you to be at the Arena between 1:15 and 1:30pm so that you may watch the procession of students into the ceremony.
After Matriculation, parents and students will not have an opportunity to meet up, so we encourage you to have said your goodbyes before the Matriculation Walk. Students will go directly from Matriculation to SPLASH, an activities fair on Nickerson Field. Parents will go directly from Matriculation to a reception in the Fitness and Recreation Center.
