Matriculation, from the latin matrix, means to be registered or added to a list. Here at King’s it refers to the formal practice of enrollment in the University. Garbed in the College’s traditional academic gowns, new students will inscribe their name in the Matricula, symbolically joining the community of thousands of King’s’ men and women that have come before them.
