Class of 2023 Celebrates With Lux et Lex Walk

Franklin & Marshall's Class of 2023 joined together for one last journey around the pathways of campus during the Lux et Lex walk May 12.

The walk began at the College's Alumni Sports & Fitness Center and concluded at Steinman College Center after students passed under the Lux et Lex arch over Klauder-Apple Walkway.

The Lux et Lex walk is a relatively new F&M tradition. Incoming students complete the walk to begin their first semester and pass under the arch in the opposite direction as seniors.

Friday's walk provided an opportunity for the campus community to celebrate the soon-to-be graduates. Faculty, staff, and members of the Board of Trustees lined walkways on campus to cheer for students.

An estimated 518 students will graduate as part of the Class of 2023. Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 13 at 10 a.m. and will be broadcast live on the F&M Commencement website.
