The Kansas Wesleyan University campus is coming back to life this weekend.
While some students, including athletes moved back last week, the rest of the student body is moving in this weekend.
There were plenty of smiles mixed with a few hugs and tears Saturday as students began to move into the dorms on campus. Family, friends, and KWU staff members pitched in to help with the move-in effort.
Activities for the students are planned all weekend.
The school invites Salina churches and the public to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the middle of the KWU campus for Worship on the Lawn, Sunday morning beginning at 9:30, for a beautiful time of morning worship with students and the greater Salina community.
Dru Davis, director of Worship Ministries for the United Methodist Church of the Cross in Salina, will lead the congregational singing, with the KWU Philharmonic Choir providing special music under the direction of Ken Hakoda, associate professor and chair of the Department of Music.
Cameron Jackson, director of Spiritual Development at Kansas Wesleyan, will bring a message called “Enjoy the Journey.”
There will be an opportunity for making a donation toward the purchase of ingredients for the university’s Feed My Starving Children (fmsc.org) mobile food pack project planned for this academic year.
KWU student registration is Monday. Classes for the fall semester begin Tuesday.
