SWU welcomes new Warriors

CENTRAL – Southern Wesleyan University welcomed its newest Warriors to Central Aug. 18. Many new students moved into the university’s newest residence hall, located on Wesleyan Drive, across from Newton Hobson Chapel and Fine Arts Center.

Student volunteers and a team of volunteers from Trinity Wesleyan Church assisted freshman and transfer students as they moved their belongings into campus housing.

Highlights of Orientation included “Freshmen Connect,” an opportunity for new students to learn about businesses, local ministries and other services in the area; a “Passing the Mantle” service with 2014 SWU alumna Keonna Palmer as the speaker; and both fun and informational activities throughout the weekend.
