It’s a St. Edward’s tradition to celebrate the arrival of students on campus for a new academic year, and even amid a pandemic, it remains strong.

During Move-in Days and Anchors, the university community came together to help students settle into their residence halls and get acquainted with their hilltop family. It was an exciting and fun time of new experiences and friendships as students prepared for in-person classes to begin on Aug. 23.

Below, we share highlights from the week. Don’t miss the Instagram video chat between President Montserrat Fuentes and Student Government Association President Jae De León.

Welcome home, Hilltoppers! We’re happy you’re here and back in the classroom.
