WELCOME CLASS 2015

WELCOME CLASS 2015

Did you ever think that going away to college would be so dramatic? I assume many of you have recently experienced either an earthquake or the hurricane all within days of starting college.  We hope all of you and your families were safe during these difficult events. Our Freshman move in began on Friday, August 26th on a beautiful sunny summer day and concluded on Saturday, August 27th what started out to be a sunny day but had several torrential down pour during the afternoon. The University staff welcomed the freshman class and their families to a family lunch under a tent set up in the quad followed by the traditional convocation which was held under the main tent behind the gym. The RI Bagpiper Association accompanied the procession of administrators, faculty, staff and incoming Freshman to their seats to participate in a formal ceremony welcoming the Class of 2015 to the University. After greetings from the President, other Administrators and the President of the Student body each of the Dean addressed their students to stand and don their gown which was the official induction into the University. It was an emotional and ceremonial event for all but a feeling of pride an accomplishment was felt by parents and students alike.

The Admission Office wishes to WELCOME our Class of 2015 and to all of our returning students whom we have missed over the summer. You are more than welcome to stop by anytime if you have any questions or if we can be of help to you. ENJOY!
