Milligan students return to campus

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (August 20, 2007) — Students arrived on Milligan College’s campus this weekend to a whirlwind of activity, all part of “Welcome Week 2007.”

Today, August 20, new students travel to Doe River Gorge for a fun and uniquely titled event, “ Kiss Your Momma Goodbye and Learn to Wash Your Own Socks, It’s the Doe River Gorge August Migration of the 2007 Buffalo Nation.”

Returning students will gather at 6 p.m. tonight for their first dining experience in the newly renovated McCormick Dining Center for “Back to School Bash.” The café-style dining center, which now offers continuous service from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., already has received rave reviews from faculty and staff who enjoyed a sneak preview luncheon last week.

For new students, the orientation week is a time to learn more about the campus, network with peers and partner with faculty mentors and team leaders who help guide them through their first year.

New students attended several welcome sessions on Saturday evening before officially joining the Milligan community by signing their names to the college’s roll during the annual Matriculation ceremony in Seeger Chapel.

On Sunday morning, students participated in a campus-wide worship service in Seeger Chapel, followed by several orientation activities which culminated with the annual New Student Banquet on Sunday evening.

Orientation and registration activities continue throughout the day on Tuesday, with classes beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 22.
