Welcome Prayer Service
Monday, May 15, 2017
The Welcome Prayer Service is a very special evening for incoming Freshmen and their families, as the Villa community reaches out to welcome its newest members in a moving prayer service. Each incoming Freshman also is introduced to her Big Sister, a Junior who will take her under her wing and help her adjust to life at Villa. Refreshments follow, and the Campus Store is open too.
