Connections Day 2011

About 140 students and 190 parents took the opportunity offered on Redlands Connections Day July 23 to learn more about the University of Redlands. Participants met with faculty and staff members and sophomore, junior, and senior student mentors.

While groups of incoming freshmen learned about the campus community, their parents attended networking and connection-building opportunities with faculty and staff.

“The purpose of Connections Day is to educate the incoming class about what is available to them on campus,” said Ilaria Pesco, director of the Student Leadership and Involvement Center. “Many of the students who come make friendships that last during their time at Redlands.”

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
