Foundation Day and Family Weekend

September 21-23, 2018

Resuming an old tradition, Foundation Day will observe the 150th anniversary of the matriculation of the first nine students at the University, which occurred on September 18, 1868. The celebration will coincide with Family Weekend and will include both a Convocation on Friday, Sept. 21, when gowns will be conferred, and a special dedication of a sesquicentennial monument on Sunday, Sept. 23.
