New students welcomed to campus

Signs of new students at MUSC stirred up all types of activity as organizers prepared for the start of fall semester 2013 featuring the addition of 510 freshmen students.

On Aug. 19, new students from all six colleges were welcomed by campus leaders and treated to the university’s showcase of services for activities and involvement as well as a luncheon held at the Harper Wellness Center gym. Of the incoming students, 175 students were welcomed as part of the College of Medicine’s first-year class, the largest medical class in the school’s history.

New medical students participated in five days of orientation activities that featured presentations, tours and group activities that culminated with the class of 2017’s white coat ceremony on Aug. 18 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. New student orientation was organized and sponsored by the Division of Education and Student Life.
