Matriculation Chapel

There are many aspects of celebration at the start of a school year. Students are finding their ways to new classes and the excitement of learning new things is in the air. But there are also other traditions that remind us of the new year, like today's Matriculation Chapel service, with its presentation of the class scrolls as the candle of learning is lit for each class. This Gordon tradition includes a time of hope as we pause to celebrate our learning community together. Every Gordon student's name is inscribed onto a scroll and wrapped in ribbon. A representative from each class brings forward their class's scroll, celebrating each student's place at Gordon. For more photos of this service, visit the official Gordon College Facebook page.
