The class of 2016 and all of our returning students have arrived on campus! Every summer we count down the days as we anticipate the arrival of our students. We enjoy hearing how God used them in the summer, and we look forward to seeing what God will do through them throughout the year.
This year’s Orientation Weekend kicked off with an opening welcome session for the class of 2016 and their parents, followed by games, s’mores, and dorm devotions.
Our big freshmen activity was Faith’s very own version of The Amazing Race. Our upperclassmen led the freshmen and new students all around Ankeny to professors’ homes for various activities. We also have a great tradition of a Saturday night luau complete with coconut bowling, the limbo, and a movie and popcorn.
The students capped the orientation weekend by attending church services on Sunday and started classes on Monday morning.
We are thankful for the students God has led here to Faith, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to spend time with them in the classroom, in our homes, and serving with them in our area churches.
