Happy first year move-in day from Wellesley! As members of the newest yellow class take their first steps on campus, student leaders work to put the final touches on orientation preparations.
This year, the orientation theme is “Thrive Together,” which David Todd, advisor for new student programs, said grew out of a desire to connect new students with the campus and to each other to build community spirit.
“We are at our best when we work together,” he said. “You don’t have to do Wellesley alone.”
This week’s programs focus on both the academic and social aspects of life at Wellesley. “New students will have opportunities to explore campus resources and meet with student leaders, faculty, and staff members who will be helpful to them as they register for courses, get to know their classmates, and begin to call Wellesley their home,” said Shanté Brown, dean of first-year students.
