The 2015-2016 Freshmen class has arrived and the Biological Sciences School Dean’s office was on hand to welcome the new class of 974 undergraduate students at the Cicerone Field at Anteater Ballpark. Carolyn Willmann, director of Student Affairs, started off the morning by introducing the students to Dean Frank LaFerla, who shared his own story of being the first in his family to pursue a college education, and encouraging the new students to take advantage of the many opportunities afforded through the Biological Sciences School.
Following the Dean’s message, Carolyn Willman continued with introducing the team of Student Affairs staff on hand. Freshmen learned about the services offered and how to connect with the staff. Students closed off the ceremony with a crowd wave and stopped by the Biological Sciences School booth to pick up a gift.
