Move-in is over, and a new year begins
Students and their families received lots of help during the move-in process from a wonderful group of orientation leaders, resident assistants, faculty, staff and students who carried boxes, refrigerators, printers and more. Overall all, the University welcomed approximately 1,600 new students on both the Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses into our associate, baccalaureate, graduate and Evening/Weekend/Online programs.
Total enrollment at St. Kate's this fall is a robust 5,100 students. The campus community celebrated the new academic year on Wednesday, Sept. 5, with an all-University convocation. The focus was Collaborative Learning: Our Strength, Our Future, which showcased various types of collaborative learning. Students from the Assistantship Mentoring Program discussed how they help students navigate personal and academic challenges; staff nurses and students from the North Memorial Clinical Scholars Program shared their work together in patient care. Additionally, students and clinicians from the Integrated Clinical Education program in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program shared how they collaborated on individual patient cases, and students and a biology professor shared their experience after returning from Iceland studying river ecosystems with an interdisciplinary team of scientists from the United States, Iceland and Great Britain.
