Vandal Welcome Events

Vandal Welcome Logo

 

Vandal Welcome begins Wednesday, Aug. 19 with Housing & Residence Life move-in for new students. This is the first year that students must pre-register for their move-in time. After settling in, new students and their families will attend events that have been crafted by New Student Orientation to deliver important information and help students with their transition to campus living.

Vandal Welcome Events are also meant to be FUN! Plan on attending most of the events Wednesday, Aug. 19 through Sunday, Aug. 23, and then join other students as your schedule allows throughout the first week of school at events sponsored by other campus partners.
