New England

Saturday night, coming after the day’s Convocation exercises, the newest students at Thomas Aquinas College, New England — the Class of 2027 — gathered for the annual Freshman Soiree.

The newly enrolled freshmen mingled outside St. Augustine Hall, bonding over delicious snacks and delightful ice-breaker games. Later on, the College’s resident directors introduced the prefects through hilarious self-deprecating anecdotes, making for a fun end to a fantastic first day.
