Saint Leo University Ready to Welcome New, Returning Students

Posted on Monday, August 14, 2017 at 9:58 am

Move-in day set for August 17, classes begin August 22

 Saint Leo University will welcome close to 700 freshmen and transfer students at its annual move-in day, Thursday, August 17. Classes begin on Tuesday, August 22.

Most incoming students will pursue bachelor’s degrees in biology with an emphasis on biomedical and health sciences with 91 incoming students declaring that major. Business, criminal justice, sport business, computer science, elementary education, management, and psychology are among the most popular majors with the new class. Some students—57—have not decided on a major.

University faculty and staff are busy making preparations for the new year. Saint Leo’s Week of Welcome begins with Bio-Boot Camp students moving in to their residence halls on Saturday, August 12. The program is designed for incoming students who plan to major in biology to prepare them for the rigorous classwork and labs.

International students as well as those enrolled in the Honors Program and the Emerging Mathematics and Computer Science Scholars cohort, will move in on Tuesday, August 15.

The big move-in day begins at 8 a.m., Thursday, August 17, when new students living on campus are welcomed to their new home away from home. Students and their families will find plenty of help to unload their vehicles as faculty, staff, orientation leaders, and student-athletes carry the gear to their rooms.

Saint Leo University is located on Highway 52, Saint Leo, FL and maintains a physical presence in seven states.
