WELLcome, First Year Students!

Share This Story

With the start of the new academic year just around the corner, the Bay Path community has been welcoming the incoming first-year class with a series of Summer Welcome Days. We’re thrilled to have welcomed 182 students to campus so far, with 209 residential students ready to arrive for Welcome Weekend. 

Each day kicked off with remarks from President Doran, Dean Chapdelaine, and a career readiness session with the Sullivan Career Center. Students then split into small groups to join their Orientation Leader for a day of exploration, learning, and growth. After a morning including a campus-wide Resource Fair and scavenger hunt, where our new students had the chance to familiarize themselves with the Bay Path campus and many members of the Bay Path community, they spent their afternoon with a team from Next Level Adventures. With several different challenges to work through, each of our new students learned the value of teamwork while learning about their fellow students, and learning about themselves, too.
