At the end of their first day on campus, first-year students gather for the Matriculation Ceremony to mark their official welcome to the Bucknell community. During the ceremony, they receive a pin to commemorate the event and to recognize their fundamental responsibility of being a contributing member of the community. Following the ceremony in Rooke Chapel, the students process along a pathway of luminarias and through the Christy Mathewson Memorial Gateway to symbolize their entrance into the Bucknell community. The gateway procession is repeated during commencement.
