Move-in Weekend

Move-in weekend is almost here! The Parent & Family Association has the information you need to make the weekend a success. Whether you have questions about the logistics of your student’s move-in time, what they should (or should not) bring, or what activities will happen during the weekend, we have you covered. Don’t forget to visit our information booths on The Hill while you’re on campus.
