First Night

(2011 Photos Compliments of Michael Nolfe)

Each year freshmen are given the opportunity to gather and have a great time participating in activities and getting to know each other. This year boasts one of our best line-ups ever. There will be myriad of activities for the new students to get involved in and also meet representatives from many from many organizations on campus.
