Utah State University held a luminary procession to welcome the incoming freshman class during the first week of school.

“During the years ahead of you, you will experience successes, victories, great times and wonderful memories,” said USU President Noelle E. Cockett. “We are going to light that ‘A’ blue for you folks, our incoming class.”

Utah State University is a dynamic, thriving, and diverse institution with nine colleges and schools including the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences, Caine College of the Arts, Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services, College of Engineering, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources, College of Science and School of Graduate Studies.

“By participating in the luminary, we hope students will focus on graduation from the very beginning of their college career, and that they will be better equipped to recognize their own personal victories along the way,” said Lisa Simmons, of USU's Student Orientation and Transition Services. “We hope students will appreciate the ritual associated with starting a new phase in their life, especially one associated with the inspiring architecture of Old Main Tower.”

Welcome home class of 2022.
