The Class of 2018 Arrives

We welcomed 317 incoming students from 37 states to campus this semester. After moving in and getting settled, they enjoyed a week of orientation, complete with their first Christian Mind class, a service project, and dinner at faculty and staff homes.

Alumni referred a number of these incoming students to Covenant through our Refer-a-Scot campaign. Thank you for telling us about the students in your life who you think would make great Scots. If you think of young students who would fit well at Covenant, tell us about them! We would love to connect with those students.
