Hot times

Faculty and staff returned to the UW-River Falls campus Monday morning to begin fall semester by attending opening week meetings and events. Soaring temperatures into the upper 90s, feeling more like 100-plus degrees with the heat index, greeted employees and many sought refuge in the shade for the hospitality hour following the opening meeting. A record number of international students began to arrive on campus Monday. First-year students move in Saturday, Aug. 31, and classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 4. (Photo by Kathy M Helgeson)
