Candle-lighting Ceremonies Mark New School Year
In August, FDU’s Metropolitan and Florham campuses welcomed more than 1,300 incoming freshmen and marked the start of the new academic year with candle-lighting ceremonies.
President Christopher Capuano advised the new students to seize the opportunities that FDU presents. “Your lives will change forever. Best of luck to all of you!” he added.
To meet some of the new faces on campus and learn about their dreams and expectations go to “Presenting the Class of 2021.”
