What to Expect your Freshman Year



Orientation is the place to learn everything about academics, campus programs and services, as well as an opportunity o meet staff, faculty, and other students of your class! Learn everything you need to know about our campus and programs to help prepare for your first day in the fall. 

Room Assignments 

Room assignments are emailed to your student email account toward the middle of July! We recommend reaching out to your roommate/suitemates to get to know each other and to plan accordingly for fall. This helps to coordinate who will bring what for your dorm! Then get excited to meet everything, because move in weekend will be here before you know it.

From 9 AM - 4 PM you will be able to pick up your textbooks at the University Store as well as your student ID and parking permit at Seawolf Services. After, join everyone for the Family BBQ from 4-6 PM on Person Lawn.
