WABI showcases Friday’s Maine Hello for new students

WABI (Channel 5) covered Friday’s Maine Hello welcome for the 2,000-plus incoming first-year and new students, and their families. About 700 students and staff greeted the new Black Bears and helped them move into residence halls. University of Maine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy encouraged new students to “explore this campus. Really experience the full University of Maine opportunities, get to know folks, and get connected.” Maine Hello volunteer Rachel Hyatt advised new students to be themselves. “This is your home. You made the right decision, so just be confident in that choice that you made.”
