Students celebrate new school year with fun, friendship and food
The first two weeks of the fall semester at the University of Missouri–St. Louis provided ample opportunity for students to get reacquainted and form new friendships with events such as Serendipity Sendoff, the Welcome Back Picnic, Paint-a-Palooza, Food Truck Friday and the Fall Expo. Over the past two weeks, UMSL photographer August Jennewein has crisscrossed campus – and a few parts beyond – documenting all the fun.
