ROANOKE, Va. – Hundreds of Roanoke College students took to the streets of downtown Roanoke on Monday for an evening of fun.
Roanoke College has set up the event since 2009 as a way to introduce new students to all that downtown Roanoke has to offer. It resumed last year after taking a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The college has welcomed over 600 incoming freshmen this year, the biggest class since 2019.
Students got to enjoy a live band, petting zoo, inflatables, street performers, food vendors, and other activities.
Evening classes begin on Tuesday with day classes beginning on Wednesday.
