We gather on the Sunday prior to Week 1 at the Revelle College Lawn (Stonehenge) at 3:00pm to welcome new and returning students to campus and to open the year up with a Mass. Following Mass there is a BBQ where you can connect with old friends, enjoy good food, and make new friends. All are welcome!
