Arriving back on campus
Beginning to plan your student's trip back to campus? Freshmen should plan on arriving on campus on Saturday, Aug. 29. Move-in is on a staggered schedule between 9-11 a.m.; students will receive their move-in time with their housing assignment at the end of July.
All other students should plan on returning on either Tuesday, Sept. 1, or Wednesday, Sept. 2. On those days, upperclassmen can pick up keys at Nichols House between 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
