Welcome back to the Campus Beautiful, Colonels! We hope you enjoyed a safe, healthy summer and are ready for a new school year. Big E Welcome looked a little different this year; for the safety of our students and their families, move-in activities were socially distanced and spread out over a week. But as you can see, that didn’t stop new Colonels from falling in love with their second home. Once everyone was settled in, it was time for the first day of what is sure to be a memorable academic year. Here are some photos of the Big E Welcome and first day of classes captured by staff photographer Carsen Bryant.
