Earlham College Events The latest events from Earlham College in Richmond, IN Copyright 2016, Earlham College http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/ Thu, 22 Sep 2016 00:00:00 GMT Alumni Welcome Table at NSO ( Fri, Aug 19, 2016 ) Everyone at Earlham is excited to be welcoming the largest class of first-year students in recent history! On Friday, August 19, the College is expecting more than 380 new faces for New Student Orientation (NSO). We who are local alumni can give a big assist to the NSO staff in welcoming these new students and their parents to the global Earlham community, of which we are all a part. Move-in takes place from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, August 19, 2016. We need eight to ten alumni volunteers to staff an Alumni Welcome Table. Volunteers will distribute gift bags and water bottles to the Class of 2020. During past move-in days, I have seen for myself how important the arrival experience is, both for students and their families. Students and parents are impressed and reassured in seeing that alumni are so devoted to Earlham, and so willing to help students begin this new chapter in their lives. Each participating alum will receive a t-shirt to wear and a voucher to have lunch in the dining hall afterward. Please fill out this form if you would like to participate! I'm looking forward to seeing you on August 19! http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=42527&r=14437 http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=42527&r=14437 New Student Orientation ( Fri, Aug 19, 2016 – Tue, Aug 23, 2016 ) http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=36977&r=14437 http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=36977&r=14437 SunSplash 2016 featuring Smash Mouth ( Sat, Sep 10, 2016 ) Earlham celebrates the beginning of a new academic year with an outdoor splash in the sun.

The traveling group digs into the headlines of the day, and creates song parodies and skits which convey a special brand of political humor. 
This performance will focus on the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election. http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=42621&r=14437 http://www.earlham.edu/news/events/calendar/?id=42621&r=14437 NYC Young Alumni Gathering in Harlem ( Thu, Sep 22, 2016 ) Celebrate the end of summer with your NYC Earlhamite friends!
