First Week is a campus tradition that both celebrates the students, faculty, and
staff that make the College such a special place. First Week 2016 is set to last
from, Saturday, August 27 – Tuesday, August 30. 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 2016! If you have any questions, please contact
