Preparing for your First Semester and Move-In

Events for Students and Parents

Preparing for Move-In

Online Event

Tuesday, August 10 at 6:00 PM ET

It’s almost time to move-in to your residence hall! We recognize that a significant part of the collegiate experience occurs outside of the classroom. Our residential communities, led by committed student and professional staff, become home away from home for students. Join Director of Residence Life, Blake Petty, and student community advisors, for this interactive session focusing on what to expect while living on campus, items you can and cannot bring, and important housing policies.

Check out this playlist of Dorm Tour videos prior to the event!
