Inauguration events—from panels on living Bronco values out in the world to a procession and prayer for migrants—have campus abuzz. Among the first was a birthday party for  President Kevin O’Brien, S.J., who turned 53. The week of activities will cap off with the formal inauguration Mass and ceremony.
