Over Labor Day Weekend, Middlesex welcomed 116 new students from 15 states and 12 countries. Whether traveling by air or land, or leaving from Sweden, North Carolina, Ghana, or down the road in Concord, each of the 116 new students were treated to a beloved, decades-old Middlesex tradition.
When new students arrived on campus, Middlesex upperclassmen wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the invitation “Ask Me!” were stationed on the steps of Eliot Hall, ready to welcome new families. Ask Me kids helped new families through registration, unloaded carloads of boxes, ran up and down stairs, and set up dorm rooms. In the dorm, Ask Me kids arranged dorm furniture in creative ways to fashion the most spacious room possible, often exclaiming “My friend had this room! Here’s the best way to set it up….”
On your first day as a Middlesex student, you learn a little something about the way we do things here: someone is always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. If you need anything, just ask!
