Passing the Torch
Alumni volunteers at Night of the Celtic
Every year during student move-in week we take time to welcome our students back to campus. This year, a group of alumni volunteered to keep the tradition of passing the torch to welcome freshman students to the Carlow family at the Night of the Celtic Ceremony.

With over one hundred students and families in attendance, alumni took the time to light the lanterns of each freshman as they start their college journey and become part of the Carlow family we love so much.

Thank you to our amazing alumni volunteers!
