They took part in the clap in convocation. New students were welcomed by faculty and staff before taking part in a ceremony filled with song and prayer.
Students we spoke with say it got them in the spirit as the school year begins.
"It felt very uplifting and welcoming and like I said it felt different for me not being a Catholic, But...you know...it was a great feeling being in the room and, you know, just like being united as one,” said Hayley Ryan, who’s attending St. Ambrose from Ohio.
classes for undergrads begins tomorrow.
