Class of 2019 welcomed during Matriculation

The Lake Forest College community welcomed more than 400 new and transfer students during the traditional Matriculation Ceremony on Wednesday, August 26.

The long-standing ceremony began with the signing of the Matriculation Banner by the new members of the Class of 2019.

Led by members of the Student Government Executive Board and the 2015-2016 Senior 25, the new students walked a colorful gauntlet of national flags representing their home countries and cheering faculty, staff, and students.

Well-wishers lined the walkway through Middle and North campuses as the new students processed to First Presbyterian Church for the formal 2015 Matriculation Ceremony.

The Class of 2019 is a talented and diverse group representing 35 states and 35 countries. They have matriculated at one of the top colleges in the country.

During the ceremony, Head of Public Services and Collection Development/Reference Librarian Cory Stevens received the prestigious Bird Award.
