The Beginning

And just like that... you all arrived!

We prepped and planned and got everything organized. Residence Life was so prepared it felt like the night before Christmas, we were so giddy. And then, like rays of sunshine, all the students descended upon us and the opening of Academy was real. Structured as a four day extravaganza, Opening Weekend consisted of: moving in, registration, a multitude of residence hall and building activities, outings by art division, and Opening Convocation. It is such a lovely period of time, with everyone’s excitement at it’s peak, with all the hope of the year overflowing from new and returning students alike.

So welcome to the Academy. Welcome to a marvelous year.

Let’s get started, shall we?
