Attendance is mandatory for all first-year students.

Location: McDonough Gymnasium
Preparation: We ask all members of the Class of 2017 and incoming transfer students to acquire a copy of In the Shadow of the Banyan, read the novel, and complete a reflection assignment about the book. You will submit this assignment electronically before arriving on campus for New Student Orientation.
