LANGSTON, Okla. – The fall semester officially started this week at Langston University. The University welcomed a new freshman class for the 2018 fall semester, and the campus is bustling with excitement! Freshman move-in started last week. New students participated in a series of events including freshman orientation known as Lion Camp. The orientation is designed for incoming students to get acclimated to campus, meet fellow Lions, and begin their academic and co-curricular experiences.

Student leaders across campus helped lead the efforts of the more than 20 events that assisted new students with getting involved on campus upon their arrival. Members of the Student Government Association, Greek Life, and the LU student ambassadors volunteered at the LU movie night, late-night yell, painting with a twist, the amazing race, and the mixer.

“I am proud of the outstanding leadership and efforts shown by the LU faculty, staff, alumni, and community volunteers who helped students with their transition into college life,” said Langston University President Dr. Kent J. Smith, Jr.

Lion Camp 2018 made one large improvement from last year, spreading out the event over two weeks. “Our goal was to ensure new students received the full Langston University experience at their own pace,” LU Dean of Student Life, Joshua Busby said. “We know there’s a lot of information being communicated at Lion Camp, so it’s better to give them time to absorb it and have more fun while doing it!”
