A Time for New Beginnings. A Time for Celebration.
St. Jerome’s University welcomes all first-year students into its community with an Investiture Ceremony. All first-year students who are part of our community are invited to attend, including those co-registered with St. Jerome’s University and all who live within our residence.
Investiture is a formal ceremony that takes place on the Sunday that concludes Orientation Week activities. Vested in traditional academic robes, speakers welcome new students and community members. We will also commission all the new student leaders, Board members, and academic leaders who have committed themselves to serving the university. At its conclusion, students on campus will have the opportunity to recieve a unique St. Jerome's University pin denoting the start of their academic journey at the university. The experience is framed upon completion of their degree at a Graduation and Liturgy ceremony held at St. Jerome’s University.
