The University of the South welcomes the Class of 2018 and other new students to the University with a week-long orientation that began Aug. 23, following Finding Your Place and PRE. In addition to residence hall meetings and numerous information sessions, the week includes meetings with academic advisors, the always-popular shrimp boil, open houses at university theme housing, a class photo in front of All Saints’ Chapel, and the solemn signing of the Honor Code.
Committed to the ongoing development of the Domain as a national center for environmental learning, the university has appointed Kevin Hiers, C’96, director of environmental stewardship. As the chief administrator for the use of land beyond residential, commercial, and campus areas, Hiers will organize the growing scientific activity on the land beyond the center of campus. He will also, through planning and partnerships with other institutions, encourage and facilitate new projects that study the Domain for the public good.
