(pronounced muh-TRICK-yuh-late)

We admit it – this is a really weird word. It reminds us of the word matrimony, but it’s really a verb meaning to enroll as a member of something, usually of a school. You probably won’t ever use this word yourself, but you will probably come across it at some point – that’s why we are including it. We want you to feel smart, you know.

Example: Several decades ago Bobbie, Sara and Julie all matriculated together at the Rhode Island School of Design, and after graduation they started their own design firm together.
