(Moreau Honors Student orientation leaders welcomed about 40 new Moreau scholars to campus during early move-in, happily schlepping pillows, frisbees, and fridges through the halls of O'Hara as the first-year students got settled. A family luncheon and farewell ceremony ensued, followed by a fun-filled day of bonding activities, quirky information sessions, and cupcake decorating! Students competed in a scavenger hunt the next morning in Boston, serenading strangers and following the Freedom Trail before joining the rest of the class of 2016 at the official welcome mass back at Stonehill.)
