Welcome back! And a big welcome to all of the new students this
Freshmen, transfers, and exchange students were greeted with a warm
welcome by the Grove City College marching band, faculty members,
and orientation board on move-in day.
Getting to Know You
The first few weeks of school can be a
difficult transition period for new students, so the orientation
board brings fun activities, like the Graffiti Dance, for
incoming freshmen to make friends, have some fun, and forget about the
stresses of a new school year. Even President Jewell was spotted
signing a few t-shirts!
Every fall, the incoming freshmen participate in the Orientation
Board Olympics. Students are placed on a team, each of which
represents a different country. I think we may see some of these
events in the next world Olympics! There's nothing like wacky relay
races, water balloon tosses, and dance competitions that can really
bring some new friends together.
