St. Edward's University Welcomes Class of 2014 Freshman Move-In Aug. 20
St. Edward's University welcomes 775 incoming freshmen—a record number for the university—to campus on Friday, Aug. 20, as they move into the university’s residence halls.
Student organizations and student athletes will be available between 9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. to help freshmen settle in to their new home on campus. Students will be moving in from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If students need help with their belongings, they don’t have to look very far.
Welcome Days, which is packed with activities, is designed to help new undergraduate students experience campus life, meet faculty and staff members and make them feel at home. Whether you decide to cheer on the St. Edward’s soccer teams, attend an evening luau or Hillfest with new friends, the faculty and staff members at St. Edward’s are ready for you.
Students and parents can take a break from moving-in and enjoy time with family, friends and members of the St. Edward's community while eating Texas barbecue at the Welcome Barbecue at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21 on the Main Building Lawn.
During Welcome Days, make time for a very special St. Edward’s tradition — the Medallion Ceremony. Join President George E. Martin, faculty and staff members as he inducts freshmen into the academic community. During the ceremony, freshmen will receive a university medallion and gain a greater understanding of the university’s Holy Cross tradition.
After the ceremony, students walk to their particular school to familiarize themselves with the program and meet the dean and professors. The Medallion Ceremony will be held from 2-3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 22, at the Recreation and Convocation Center. While students attend the Academic School Receptions from 3-4 p.m., parents and family members are invited to attend the Family Reception in the RCC Atrium.
