Please Note: Updated information for the Class of 2025 will be available in early June 2021. Orientation activities for most first year students are scheduled to begin on campus on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021, with move-in on or before that date. Some pre-orientations or athletic pre-seasons may begin earlier. Given our continued responsiveness to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that students and their friends or family not make travel arrangements until the fall semester dates are confirmed and recommend flexible/refundable travel plans at that time.
Welcome to your new home away from home, Class of 2025! It is an exciting, potentially overwhelming time, but we're here to guide you through the transition.

Housing Questionnaire (Required)
All first-year students are required to complete a Housing Questionnaire form. Using this information, the College assigns students to Customs groups in one of the first-year residences. While we understand there are numerous reasons students might want to request a specific residence hall, we place a greater value on the people who will shape your community rather than the building in which you will be living.
Theft/Fire & Accident Insurance (Optional)
The information on National Student Services, Inc.'s Student Personal Property Plan is provided as a courtesy. The College does not endorse this program.
Linens Program (Optional)
You have a number of options when it comes to providing your own linens. The Residence Hall Linens Program shares a portion of the proceeds each year with Students' Council.
