The University of the South welcomed the Class of 2016 (its largest class ever) and other new students to the University with a week-long orientation that began August 25. In addition to registration for classes, dorm meetings and numerous information sessions, the week includes the always-popular shrimp boil, a class photo in front of All Saints’ Chapel, and the solemn signing of the Honor Code.
As part of the welcome to new students and their parents, Vice-Chancellor John McCardell gave an address in All Saints' Chapel on Sunday, August 26 (read the text here).
The entire university community will celebrate the start of the new academic year beginning with a gathering Tuesday, August 28, in All Saints' Chapel, followed by a picnic in the Quad. Student leaders will briefly share their aspirations for the year ahead, and remarks by Vice-Chancellor John McCardell will conclude the gathering.
