HIGH POINT, N.C. — Incoming freshmen started moving into the residence halls at High Point University on Saturday and were welcomed by faculty, staff and volunteers.
School officials said that each year the volunteers make the transition for new HPU students as smooth as possible.
The crew worked especially hard in the rain today to make families feel welcome.
“The orientation crew made me feel like I was moving home instead of to a new place,” said Taylor Hogan, a freshman from Loudonville, N.Y., according to a prepared statement. “It makes me want to volunteer and do what they did today.”
Officials said that students return this year to new technology and programs on campus.
“Coming in we were made to feel welcome and at home,” said Lauren Holton, mother of freshman Jacob Holton from North Carolina.
