Members of the class of 2027 officially signed into the college during Convocation on Sunday, Aug. 27. In addition to welcoming first-year students to the college, the ceremony also marked the start of the 2023-24 academic year.
The process of walking up Old West's stone steps to join the Dickinson community is one half of a hallowed tradition at the college. The doors of Old West are only opened twice per year, once when the first-year class joins the college during Convocation, and then again when the graduating class walks down the stone steps to become alumni during Commencement.
