Saint Martin's University welcomes new students

Over 250 freshmen students plus their families descended on Saint Martin’s University on Thursday morning, August 23 to begin Fall Welcome Weekend for the 2007-08 academic year. Students who are living on campus moved in their belongings by the truck, SUV and car load. 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. Classes start on Monday, August 27.
