New Student Move-in Day at Union University

Life Group leaders welcome new students to campus with signs and much excitement

Each year the entire Union University community comes together for one reason: to welcome its newest members. New students arrive on campus to the energetic cheering of several Life Group leaders. They and their families make their way to the Fred DeLay Gymnasium to check in with Residence Life for keys, as well as to collect car tags, post office box numbers, etc.. Once checked in, they head over to the residence complexes, only to find out that they no longer have the burden of unloading their belongings. The car/truck/trailer that took hours to pack, will take minutes to unpack due to the hundreds of faculty, staff, Union friends and upperclassmen who come to help unload. Anyone who has ever moved into Union will tell you what a relief that crowd of helpers is! We are wrapping up another fantastic move-in day, and new students are beginning Focus, which is full of fun activities to acquaint them with Union. We hope you enjoy these photos from the morning, and if you are a new student, welcome to Union!
