NEW ALBANY, IN (Aug. 26, 2011) – IU Southeast welcomed its latest class to campus at the annual Student Induction Ceremony Friday.
The incoming freshmen are the 70th class at the University, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. New students – including freshmen and transfers – were welcomed to campus on Friday by faculty, administration, and fellow students.
Official enrollment figures will be released by Indiana University in Bloomington early next month, but IU Southeast expects about 1,500 new students to be on campus this fall. About 700 attended the induction to receive an IU Southeast lapel pin during the pinning ceremony. They were also given their first tassel from IU Southeast – the second tassel from the University will come at their graduation.
Friday also was Orientation Day for new students. About 400 students moved into the IU Southeast Lodges on Thursday, Aug. 25 and classes for the fall 2011 semester begin Monday, Aug. 29.
