Occidental extended a warm welcome to members of the Class of 2026 as they arrived on campus, an important milestone for students and their families.

Along with the energetic O-Team, student and staff volunteers were on hand on August 22 to help the newest batch of first-years and transfer students settle in and feel at home on campus. Later, students attended the "Welcome to Oxy! A Community Celebration" event at the Remsen Bird Hillside Theater and met with their Resident Advisers at the residence halls. Experience the excitement of the day through the slideshow below.
