First-Year Student Arrival

On Your Arrival Day

We can't wait to welcome you to campus! Your arrival day will consist of three required components:

  1. Residential Life Check-In (if you are living on campus)
  2. Welcome Week Check-In
  3. International Services Office Check-In (international students only)

On your arrival day, you can expect to pick up your campus ID card, your room key, and a welcome bag. If your family members are with you, they can also attend Welcome Week Check-In to pick up their own bag of goodies.
