This past week we concluded our summer with a visit to the ice cream truck for the final “Thunder Thursday,” a monthly get-together for on-campus staff, faculty and students. We had Bison cookies on the lawn in front of the auditorium last Thursday.
On Saturday, the campus was abuzz as we welcomed our new students to campus. Staff and faculty graciously volunteered to be “Bison Bellhops” to help students (and their families) move in by answering questions, directing traffic, and carrying boxes. Players from various athletic teams on campus were found giving high-fives and a helping hand to in-coming classmates.
I want to extend a warm welcome to new and returning students. With the opening of the new Student Center which is slated for early November, presidential election related events (please be sure you are registered to vote), our notable speakers and events series, and the kickoff of our fall athletic season, it is an exciting time to be on the hill!
