The beginning of a new academic year is rejuvenating for all of us who work on a college campus, and your arrival signals the start of another exciting year. You should have already received the first and only mailing from us (a book and a couple of letters).  Everything else will be posted here and on the pages in the left hand column menu.  First and foremost, you can now see the online Welcome Week schedule by clicking on "Schedule for Welcome Week" in the left hand column
