Hello New Eagles,
Welcome to Edgewood College, our Class of Community. We on the Orientation Team are so pleased to welcome you to your new journey and take you on your First Flight!
My name is Fabiana and I’m the Orientation Assistant for Flight Crew this Summer. I’m an upcoming Junior studying Biology and a Peer Leader for a COR class this fall, and I’m so excited to be working to create a welcoming and engaging environment for you all, however that takes form. When I’m not studying or helping to plan Orientation, I also work for the Office of Student Inclusion and Involvement and will be planning many events for you all to enjoy this year. It is my hope that you enter into your own college career with laughter and support from all of us who came before you.
During these troubling times, we know that you all are wondering what your semester is going to look like. What I can promise you is that we’re doing everything to make this summer and fall as fun, interactive, and informative as possible. As your peer, I hope I can be a resource for you all to have your questions answered and your voices heard. This will be a unique Orientation and semester, but the entire Flight Crew and myself will be here every step of the way to help you all adjust to your new campus and home.
And we can’t wait to see all your stylish face masks this fall!
