Nicole Emmons has fond memories being at Whitcraft-Schiffman Memorial Amphitheater the weekend before her freshman year at Columbia College began – even if she didn’t watch the movie that was playing on the large inflatable screen.
For the first time in more than 50 years, the line of families sending their children off to college went to a new place: New Hall. Wednesday kicked off Welcome Week, five days of settling in, getting to know you, getting your bearings and all the other necessities that come with the start of a new academic year.
It’s official. The 2015-16 academic year is off and running, and it started with a Welcome Week and Explorientation packed with unforgettable events. Enjoy this video highlighting the week’s activities, and welcome to campus, Cougars!
