FocusQuicker than we could have imagined, and quicker than many of us would have liked, summer slipped through our fingertips and is beginning to give way to fall. As you have come to know through the years, that means it’s one of the busiest times here at HLG. From move-in day with the help of the Swarm Squad to Welcome Week and, of course, the first few days of classes, campus activity really picks up at the end of August, so read a little about what we’ve been up to and what is in store! Take a look in this newsletter to find highlights of our last few weeks, including the dedication and opening of Fletcher Hall, our new residence hall on campus. It’s a beautiful facility, and it really helped kick off the year in a grand way. Join us as we celebrate the beginning of a new year!
