We are excited to welcome our incoming class of first-year students this week. We wanted to let you know about the schedule for student arrival on campus since they will begin joining us on Wednesday, August 29th for pre-semester programs.

Wednesday, August 29th: Early Adventure. About 80 incoming first-year students have signed up to participate in this year's Early Adventure program. These students will move in on Wednesday, August 29 and will then promptly depart campus for a 3-day, 2-night trip to Camp Woodstock, returning on Friday, August 31.

Thursday, August 30th: Transfer Orientation. About 150 of our incoming students for Fall 2018 are transfer students. On Thursday, August 30th, we will welcome them to campus with a Transfer Orientation program designed specifically for them. Those transfer students who are living on campus will also be moving into their housing assignments that morning. 

Friday, August 31st: Orientation Session 5 and Hawk Hall move-in. We are expecting about 300 incoming first-year students to move in on Friday, August 31st and participate in Orientation Session 5. In addition, all Hawk Hall residents will move in on the afternoon of Friday, August 31st. 

Saturday, September 1st: First-Year Move-In. We will welcome the remainder of the incoming class on Saturday, September 1st. Many events will take place on that day to welcome them to campus, and the programs will continue for them until they begin classes.
