Fresh Faces: Class of 2015 Issued PASSPORT to College Life

During the “Amazing Race” event, new students participated in a scavenger hunt to become acclimated to their new campus.

At Oglethorpe’s annual PASSPORT event last week, more than 150 incoming freshmen got their first taste of college life during the day-long orientation program.  The newbies and their parents swarmed campus as they met up with their professors, coaches, and classmates for their first official welcome to Oglethorpe. A second PASSPORT will be held in July for the remaining freshmen class.

Their activities included a campus-wide scavenger hunt, a barbeque lunch, and spending some time with their new advisors.  Scroll down to check out pics from the event!

At the Parents’ Panel discussion, parents of incoming freshman got advice from parents of current and former students. That’s my mom on the left 🙂

Petey made some new friends.

Refreshment for the freshmen!

The Pop Shop came to the quad with several different popsicle flavors.
