APPLETON - A presidential inauguration took place at Lawrence University Saturday.
Mark Burstein was formally installed as the school's 16th president.
The former Princeton University executive officially took over for Jill Beck on July 1, after her retirement in June.
An official inauguration ceremony was held in Burstein's honor at the Lawrence Memorial Chapel.
Delegates from more than 60 colleges and universities from across the country were on hand.
They included the presidents of MIT, Princeton and Yale.
For Burstein, joining their ranks is a new experience.
"Being a first time president is full of learning, and in some ways that's a wonderful thing because we are learning institutions. So for me, I should be learning as well as my students on campus learning," said Burstein.
The ceremony was just one event in a weekend of celebrations in Burstein's honor.
