As part of the celebration, first year and new transfer students processed in the New Student Cavalcade from McGrath-Phillips Arena to the Quad. Along the way, the DePaul community lined the path to celebrate the expansion of our campus community. Once at the Quad, the annual academic welcome was delivered by university leadership, including President Robert Manuel, Provost Salma Ghanem, the Student Government Association President, and others. Following the welcome, attendees were treated to a Chicago food festival, performances, photo stations, and more. (Photos by Jeff Carrion/DePaul University)
