Saint Martin's University welcomes new students

Over 200 freshmen students plus their families descended on Saint Martin’s University on Friday morning, August 25 to begin Welcome Back Weekend for the 2006-07 Academic Year. Students who are living on campus moved in their belongings by the truck, SUV and car load. More than 50 SMU students, faculty, staff and administrators assisted the new freshmen and their parents in clearing out the vehicles and filling up the rooms in Baran and Spangler Halls. The “Saint Martin’s Moving Company” hauled boxes, suitcases, shoes, food and miscellaneous other items up two or three flights of stairs while students and parents checked in, received room keys and schedules for the rest of the weekend activities. Additional weekend activities included workshops, placement exams, seminar classes and lots of fun activities to help the new students get to know each other and the University. Classes start on Monday, August 28.
