Preparing for Orientation

Student Program, Parent Program, & Logistics

We suggest you bring the following items to Orientation: watch, alarm clock, casual clothes, comfortable walking shoes, sweater or jacket, umbrella, personal toilet supplies, notebook, and pen and pencil. Towels, a pillow, and bed linens will be provided in the residence halls for Sessions 1-6. Students attending Session 7 will move directly into their assigned fall housing and are expected to bring all room accessories.

We also require that you bring the Academic Planning Workbook and the University Course Catalog (both of which will be mailed to first-year students in mid-May). For any additional information regarding course selection and placement, please refer to the Language Examinations and Mathematics Course Selection websites.

We will send you detailed information about check-in and parking with your session confirmation notice.
