Fall Orientation is a four-day experience held before the beginning of the fall semester. This
mandatory session offers students a starting point in how to interact
with others, how to traverse academics, and in many cases, how to deal
with living with someone for the first time. Attend Fall Orientation

Detailed information about parking and the check-in location will be sent students prior to move-in day.
