Class of 2023 descends on the Farm

No one can remember the last time it sprinkled during move-in day for first-year students and transfers. But the grey clouds did nothing to dampen the spirits of the new undergraduates and their friends and families or the members of the university community who checked them into their residence halls, helped them with their belongings and served them their first meals on the Farm. It was a busy day, highlighted by the 129th Opening Convocation, a ceremony that officially marks the beginning of a new school year. Photographers from throughout campus captured the day’s activities in this slideshow.
