This year’s new students are taking their Tiger Walk — a walk (or run) through the Columns toward Jesse Hall to symbolize their entrance to the university — in turns, with groups of no more than 20 students. Nearly 400 time slots were available between Aug. 19 and 23.
“It is different, but what’s different about it is also making it super special,” said Lynn Kreul, Alumni Association Student Board president. “You are with a close number of people, and you actually get to know their names as you run through.”
Meeting new people and making friends are key aims of Welcome Week, a series of events of which Tiger Walk is a high point. New students spend the week before classes start learning to navigate campus and its resources.
