St. Edward's University Welcomes Class of 2011
New faces continue to arrive on campus as the Class of 2011 attends orientation at St. Edward's University. Half of the expected 725 incoming freshmen have already visited campus during the New Undergraduate Student and Parent Orientation sessions, which welcome the newest Hilltoppers and their parents to campus. The remaining members of the class are set to arrive for orientation throughout August.
This new group of students will bring undergraduate enrollment to 3,280, up from 3,050 in fall 2006. St. Edward's University has seen a 97 percent growth in the freshman class since 1999.
The New Undergraduate Student Orientation Program at St. Edward’s University is designed to provide incoming freshmen with the tools and know-how needed to help assure a smooth transition into college life.
Students will learn more about their major, meet with an academic advisor, register for classes and become acquainted with the services, organizations and people that make St. Edward’s such a remarkable place. Participation in one orientation session is required.
The remaining members of the class are set to arrive for Orientation on the following dates.
Session 6 – Aug. 22-23
At orientation, sessions will address the St. Edward’s mission, academic requirements, faculty expectations and university resources. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to meet current student leaders, other new families, university administrators and faculty members.
The university will have several construction projects underway this summer, including a new parking garage, residence and dining hall and chiller plant. Need help navigating the campus? Please feel free to ask a member of the St. Edward’s community or consult a directional kiosk near the Bookstore.
