R-MWC rolled out the welcome mat for 253 new students this semester.

On Tuesday, August 24, first-year students and their families spent the day unloading boxes, checking in, picking up keys, getting orientation schedules, and settling into their new homes on campus.

Dozens of students, staffers and community volunteers were on hand to assist — from orientation leaders, student government officers, and resident assistants checking-in families to volunteer porters helping with the luggage, security officers directing traffic and V.P. for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Sarah Swager handing out cold drinks.

International students checked in on August 19, athletes on August 20. Returning students began arriving August 28.
