Institutional Celebrations

Campus celebrations and events are a special part of life at Rosemont. Time honored traditions weave a common thread through the Rosemont experience from one generation to the next, while newer occasions highlight the College’s ability to continuously renew and adapt.

Though campus life is often a busy routine of familiar faces and schedules, special events bring all members of the Rosemont community together. Students branch out, alumni reconnect, and families and community members become better acquainted with the College. Whether welcoming new students at Convocation or wishing graduates well at Commencement, we recognize and celebrate each other’s achievements.
