One of the highlights of fresher’s week in Cambridge is the matriculation ceremony. It’s a tradition for us to wear robes for this ceremony, where different colleges have their own unique robes with different designs. Other fresher’s week traditions include matriculation service in the grand college chapel, and matriculation dinner.
