Sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s made for perfect weather as the 778 members of the class of 2018 arrived on Mount St. James for move-in day.

Members of the first-year class were greeted by 200 student leaders, athletic teams and alumni who helped move them into their residence halls.

The beautiful weather continued into the afternoon for the traditional Mass of the Holy Spirit on the Hart Center Lawn to inaugurate the new academic year. Led by Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president, the Holy Cross community welcomed members of the Class of 2018, transfer students and their families.

First-year students are currently participating in a program of welcoming events, known as Fall Gateways Orientation. The events are designed to ease transition to college life by introducing students to the wide variety of academic, spiritual, community-building, and social programs available at the College.

The events include:

  • “First Night Celebration” on Aug. 30 on the Hogan Courtyard, which will feature food, photo booths, music, giveaways, The Dogfather food truck, and more
  • Film screenings of “Divergent” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on Aug. 31 on the Hogan Courtyard
  • Fall convocation on Sept. 1 in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel, which marks the threshold of full matriculation into the College community
  • Opportunities to create bowls, plates and mugs out of clay on Sept. 2 on the Hogan Courtyard

First Year Schedule – Campus (PDF).

Classes for first-year and all returning students begin on Sept. 3.
