NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- Washing windows at the McKelvey Campus Center means using a mop and squeegie mounted on the ends of 30 foot poles. It's one of those regular tasks around campus that help tidy up the look of things. It's part of the countdown to the arrival of the Class of 2016.
The first-year students move into the dorms on August 24. Fresh Start volunteers and members of the football team will help the new students and their parents unload belongings into the residence halls in the morning. The administration marks the Fresh Start season with Opening Convocation on that afternoon.
In the case of washing the Campus Center's massive windows, it means a better view from inside all three floors. More than 330 new students will become part of the 1,500 study body on campus. Returning students arrive on Monday, Aug. 27. Classes begin on Aug. 28.
