The University of Lynchburg campus is abuzz with activity again as students move in and prepare for the Fall 2016 semester.
More than 1,000 students have moved in at University of Lynchburg over the past week. About 500 new and returning student-athletes and campus organization leaders moved in Wednesday, followed by about 50 new undergraduates who came for orientation on Saturday. On Sunday, 400 new undergraduates moved in. Dozens of student volunteers helped parents and students unload luggage and cart it into residence hall rooms.
The News & Advance sent a reporter and photographer to document move-in day.
LC anticipates more than 600 new undergraduate students — including freshmen and transfers — this semester, as well as about 300 new graduate students.
Check-in and move-in for returning undergraduates and check-in for graduate students continues Monday and Tuesday.
Meanwhile, new students will participate in a variety of events during Hornet Days. Activities include laser tag, convocation, community service, and “Hornet Born. Hornet Bred,” a new event designed to share University of Lynchburg’s historic traditions and values.
