Spring 2013 semester kicks off with EU Launch for new students

January 2, 2013 | Ashli O'Connell

With the holidays now past and 2013 officially under way, Evangel University is preparing to welcome a new group of students to campus.

While fall is the traditional time for most new freshmen and transfer students to start college, there is always a new group in January as well, and Evangel staff and faculty work hard to ensure that these students are welcomed and integrated in the campus culture with an event known as EU Launch. About 30 new students are expected to begin their Evangel experience next week.

Residence halls will open at 9 a.m., on Monday, January 7, for new students to check in and move in. A variety of activities and information sessions is planned over the following days.

“EU Launch is designed to help the new students acclimate to the Evangel culture and make connections with the current students, faculty and staff,” says admissions counselor Laura Gummerman. “We use information sessions and bonding activates geared toward the new students and their parents to ensure that their first few days on campus are a comfortable and friendly transition into the Evangel family.”

Special sessions are planned for parents as well.

Classes begin on Wednesday, January 9.
