Welcome, welcome, welcome... is something we have been saying a lot around here now that school is back in session. We finished up the last registration day on Thursday (8/21). Students finalized their paperwork, got their picture taken (twice!), and completed their class schedule.
Of course it didn't end there. Both Thursday (8/21) and all day Friday (8/22) students were moving into the dorms, buying books, and generally getting to know the campus and each other.
For those of us who have been on campus all summer, it is great to see students roaming around again.
Convocation Chapel was on Tuesday (8/26). This all school chapel was a good time to welcome new students. Staff and faculty prayed for the students, dedicating both the students and themselves to the learning and work that God has in store for them this school year. [Plus, it is a good opportunity for our faculty to don those cool robes.] (Convocation Chapel Program [PDF])
