First Week is a campus tradition that both celebrates the students, faculty, and
staff that make the College such a special place. First Week 2015 is set
to last from, Saturday, August 22 – Tuesday, August 25. Although the majority
of the activities are specifically designed for incoming students, there are several
events that are open to the general student population. Upper-class students
are welcome to attend the Spirit & Traditions Kickoff, the Callaway Beach Bash,
as well as all late-night activities.
The largest events in First Week, the Spirit & Traditions Kickoff and the
Callaway Beach Bash, are open to all students (incoming as well as upper-class
students), all faculty, all staff, and LC families. For these two events,
we hope that LC faculty and staff with children will bring the kids along to celebrate
as a campus community.
See the links below for more detailed information about all the activities planned
for First Week 2014! If you have any questions, please contact
