August 25th – August 28th
We are very excited to welcome the incoming class and transfer students to our community during Orientation 2016.
Students are expected to attend all four days, as each day includes different activities and information. The Orientation experience will include a variety of activities that will familiarize new students with campus layout and life, as well as help them make connections with their peers and get immersed in campus culture.
Move In Day
Move-in for new residential students will take place on Thursday, August 25, 2016 8am-3pm. There will be returning students and staff available to help unload cars and carry items into the residence halls after new students have checked-in in the lobby or Resident Assistant Office of their assigned building.
The Fall 2016 Orientation schedule will be given to new students upon their arrival on campus on Thursday, August 25, 2016.
