2016-17 ESU incoming freshman class represented from most of the 50 states

Friday was a busy at Emporia State University, as incoming freshman flocked to their new dorm rooms to start a new chapter in their respective lives.



KVOE's Dean Erickson did a remote broadcast on Friday morning at The Towers. He caught up with Cass Coughlin, who's the Director of Residence Life.


Coughlin likes to get the incoming freshmen and transfer students involved on campus busy with activities before classes start on Monday. This is because the students will busy with hundreds of diffrent types obligations once classes resume.

Emporia State is a Division II university, which makes their incoming freshmen enrollment rather size for someone who attended the University of Kansas or Kansas State. However, Coughlin is still impressed by how many incoming freshmen chose Emporia State for the 2016-17 school terms.

Chelsea Shephard is a jack-of-all-trades. Not only does she handle recruiting new students, but she also works in the admissons department. She talks about how diverse this incoming freshmen class is for ESU.
