This year’s Thomasian Welcome Walk for the 13,049 freshmen enrolled for the first term of Academic Year 2014-2015 was scheduled a week before the official start of classes, to avoid heavy rains.

Sofiya Salim, an Accountancy freshman, said she officially became a Thomasian after the traditional walk.
