Campus & Culture
Hawks looking to get a head start on the new academic year headed to campus a week early for Saint Joseph’s University’s Early Arrival Programs. Freshman, sophomores and transfer students were invited to sign up for one of four unique programs that acclimate underclassmen to Hawk Hill, with topics ranging from community service to social justice, STEM education and more.
The University’s Early Arrival Programs provide an opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with campus and its resources, meet friends in a smaller setting and get settled into their home-away-from-home before the new year kicks off. (Added bonus: Prime seating at Barbelin Beach or Villiger Lawn to soak up the end of summer.)
“The benefits for students who participate in an Early Arrival Program can be seen almost immediately through the connections they make with other members of their class and their familiarity navigating around campus after only a few short days here,” says Dan McDevitt, Ed.D., director of student success. “After not being able to offer in-person programs last year, we are thrilled to be welcoming several hundred students to Hawk Hill this August through the Early Arrival Programs.”
Over 300 students will participate in this week’s programming, arriving from as near as the Keystone State and as far as Puerto Rico. The new semester will begin on August 23.
The following programs begin on Tuesday, August 17, 2021.
