Students Go First

At last fall’s Convocation, the formal ceremony that kicks off the academic year, new students marched en masse to Eaton Chapel along College Street through a phalanx of cheering faculty instead of the other way around.

For years, the robed administrators and faculty marched first, while first-year students lined the parade route, waiting for faculty and staff to pass before turning and following them into the chapel. Another new twist on a traditional ceremony came at the end of the event. New students exiting Eaton Chapel were met by a large contingent of returning students who welcomed them with raucous applause.
