The Office of Student Involvement would like to extend our thanks to the entire campus community for their assistance and support with Manresa 2015: Start Here! Many people across campus volunteered to assist with the program through move crew, check-in, faculty discussion sessions, interest sessions, and more, and the program wouldn't have been successful without all those who gave their time and energy!

In addition, we want to thank those who assisted with the parent/family programs, the transfer orientation program, and the veteran student orientation program.

Thanks for helping us to welcome all of our new students and families to the Xavier family!
