Campus awakens with the return of students, faculty and staff and activities that cultivate collegiality and community.
In the days leading up to the start of fall classes, the campus was abuzz with an influx of students, including many new students who officially began their academic journey by moving into the residence halls, followed by convocation and the first official day of classes on September 21.
Here’s a look at some of the events and happenings, including the President’s Welcome to faculty and staff, Move-In Day, New Student Convocation, Redfest and more.
