A number of students must move in early each year for various reasons; athletic and leadership involvement, working on campus, or personal reasons. We encourage you to arrive as close to Opening Day as you can. We are able to provide the best service to you on that day (New Student Orientation, residence hall staff availability, parking and traffic control, and dining options). However, if moving in on Opening Day will not be feasible for you or your family, it is possible that we can work with you to identify an earlier arrival date. This year, Opening Day is Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 8 AM.
