UCCS welcomes new freshman class

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A rally was held on the UCCS campus Wednesday to welcome its freshman class.

The Mountain Lion Rally was held after students moved in the past couple of days. Parents, students, and teachers all came together to celebrate the beginning of the fall semester.

“This is a great tradition for us as we welcome our freshman class,” sociology professor Kee Warner said. “It’s the biggest one ever, and it’s just not just the numbers of the people, but the variety of students that we have, the diversity, and I’d say more than anything the dreams that they bring with them.”

This was the biggest number of students ever moving onto campus, with more than 1,600 unpacking their bags and starting a new year.
