Liberty University hosted its eighth annual President's Kickoff, Friday evening, inside Williams Stadium, one of the first official events on Liberty Mountain for the 2015-16 academic year.
Liberty's Class of 2019 has spent most of the last three days moving into their dorms and adjusting to campus life. Gates opened at Williams Stadium at 5 p.m. and the largest freshmen class in school history was served dinner and had a chance to watch one of the final football workouts for Liberty's 2015 August training camp.
More than 4,000 new undergraduate students will begin studying on Liberty University's campus this fall, contributing to a resident population of 14,000 for the first time in school history.
Freshmen account for 67 percent of new undergraduate students while transfer students and students returning after at least one semester away from Liberty make up 27 and 6 percent, respectively.
