“I’m excited,” said Miya Hargraves, a Louisburg College sophomore from Cary. She was helping new students with the check-in process as part of a College leadership program.

Monday, January 14th, 2019 is set aside as check-in and an orientation day for new and returning students and their parents. Tuesday, January 15th is when returning students check-in. Spring classes begin Wednesday, January 16th

Lisa Landis, of Raleigh, was with her son Sam Landis, 20, as he was checking in. Sam is a transfer student who went to high school at Ravenscroft in Raleigh. He will major in science and also play football for the College. Sam was attending college in West Virginia, but was sidelined by a knee injury. His physical health is better, and he said he is excited to begin a new chapter at Louisburg College.

Lisa said she is excited to have Sam only 30 minutes from home. In addition, she said she likes the smaller class size at the College and the fact that everyone is warm and welcoming.

“They made me feel at home,” Sam added.
