A new academic year begins!  Welcome to all new students and all who are returning for the 2014-2015 academic year!  Special welcome to the Green Class of 2018!  An exciting year awaits and we are eager to get going!

This week on this blog and elsewhere on the website we’ll be reporting on our new students, orientation events, and plans for the new academic year.  I’ll also be adding some of the “what I did this summer” reports from students, so if you have something interesting to share with the campus community, please send me a few paragraphs and photos if you have them.

Please note that all orientation schedules are on the website.  The orientation for new first year students in the College of Arts and Sciences starts on Monday, August 18 — see the full schedule.

studentsMany thanks to all of the student orientation leaders and staff who worked so hard on Saturday to greet the new resident students and to facilitate move-in day — flawless!
