Matriculation celebrates new students joining the Boston University community. First-year students will participate in this long-standing school tradition.

Matriculation begins Sunday, September 2, 2018 at 2:00 pm in Agganis Arena (925 Commonwealth Avenue.) Parents and family members are welcome to attend the event, hosted by President Robert A. Brown, university staff, and administrators.

Before the ceremony, students will participate in the Matriculation Walk, the traditional means of traveling to the ceremony. Line up times and locations are listed in below.

In addition, we encourage you to wear BU red (scarlet) and/or BU gear to Matriculation. (No need to dress in business casual or formal gear! You’ll want to be comfortable.)

Following the ceremony, students will say their final goodbyes to family and friends before heading to the Terrier Tailgate at Nickerson Field and the rest of Sunday evening’s events.
