By Jackson Hare, Campus News Editor

This school year, Xavier has welcomed 1,250 new students making up the Class of 2027. With the theme of “On Our Block,” from Aug. 17-20, Manresa engaged first-year students in a four- day experience filled with various activities in order to acquaint them with their new home on campus and to begin their transition to college life. First-year students have shared their thoughts on the experience.

“I loved Manresa and everyone on the leadership committee. I made so many friends already and really got to immerse myself in campus and learn more about the Xavier community. The experience made me even more excited for the next 4 years as a Musketeer and all the opportunities yet to come. I hope to be a Manresa leader in the future and impact others the way my leaders impacted me.”
