LCU welcomes new and returning Wildcats to campus

Louisiana Christian University will welcome new and returning Wildcats to campus this week, with freshmen move-in beginning Wednesday afternoon.

After moving in, freshmen will spend time getting to know their classmates and learning about campus facilities and traditions. Wildcat Navigators, upperclassmen assigned to orient freshmen to campus, will each be assigned to a group of freshmen to help ease the transition to college life and be available for questions, conversations or concerns.

“We are looking forward to welcoming a new freshmen class this week as they move onto campus and participate in our traditional Wildcat Welcome Week,” said Vice President of Student Life Meredith Rennier. “Our team is excited to meet each student and build relationships with them during their time at LCU.”

Freshmen will participate in service-learning projects in the Cenla community feeding the hungry and cleaning up Versailles Boulevard in Alexandria.

LCU President Dr. Rick Brewer will host a President’s Dinner Wednesday evening for the entering class of 2027.

“This will be my 37th launch of an academic year as a university administrator,” Brewer said, “and I’m just as excited this year as I was in 1987! The awesome opportunity we have to Prepare Graduates and Transform Lives at Louisiana Christian University inspires us daily.”

A full schedule of Wildcat Welcome Weekend activities can be found online.

LCU classes begin Monday, Aug. 21.
