A sea of shopping carts awaits families unpacking cars on move-in day.

Freshman class arrives toting ukuleles, energy and impressive credentials

Members of the Chapman University class of 2016 moved into their residence halls today, August 21, toting teddy bears, lacrosse sticks, ukuleles, trumpets, laptops, favorite coffee mugs, treasured pillows and a whole lot of eager expectations as they begin a six-day orientation program.

But don’t let the fun stuff fool you. The new freshman class arrives with impressive credentials, too, including an average GPA of 3.7. It is also a geographically diverse bunch, representing 43 states and 33 nations.

Here’s wishing everyone a great year. And a lot of ukulele serenades.
