Our Lady of Grace Chapel
In this annual ceremony to start the academic year at Briar Cliff, incoming students walk together with the university president up the Briar Cliff staircase and into Our Lady of Grace Chapel, where they will make a commitment to academic integrity by signing their names into the registry book.
The staircase walk symbolizes the class members' upcoming journey, their commitment to pursuit of academic and spiritual excellence over their next four years at Briar Cliff.
The registry book will be on display four years later at commencement.
