Following a summer of Winona campus improvements and preparation, the new class of first-year students was welcomed to the Saint Mary’s community. Each fall, Move-In Weekend serves as the prelude to Welcome Week as undergraduate students — both new and returning — begin the academic year. On Saturday morning, new students and their families were lent helping hands by our athletic teams and staff from student life and other areas, as they unloaded cars and settled into the newness of their residence halls. Over the course of their first weekend with us, students were kept busy getting to know each other and the university. Returning students came back to campus later in the weekend. Following course adjust sessions with advisers, all of our undergraduate students got down to business with classes beginning on Monday. We welcome our new students, and look forward to engaging with them in productive and exciting ways over the next four years.
