A committee was appointed to meet all trains to give directions as to hacks, trunk checks, etc. In front of the main building these newcomers were met by another squad of seniors who helped them in every possible way with their matriculation and showed them to their respective halls in barracks, where they were turned over to the members of another committee and were shown to their rooms. Members of the senior class were glad of this opportunity to extend a hearty welcome to the new men."
