Class of 2016 Arrives At Lafayette
Lafayette College freshmen moved in Thursday, and said goodbye to family members.
Thursday was a big day for Lafayette College's class of 2016.
This year's freshmen arrived early in the morning, getting moved into their dorms and beginning orientation.
Later in the day, they gathered with their families at the school's Fisher Field for the convocation service, and -- when the bells tolled around 4:30 p.m. -- for an emotional goodbye to their parents, siblings and other loved ones.
This year's freshman class is made up of 609 students. Classes for the college's 181st academic year begin for all students Monday, Aug. 27.
