Attend Charge In, Opening Weekend, and Welcome Week

Charge In is one of the busiest days on campus every year - and one of the most fun!

MOVE IN for Students in a Living-Learning Community (LLC)

On Wednesday, August 24, 2016, all new resident students who will be in a Living Learning Community (LLC) will come on campus to check-in and move into their residence halls.

MOVE IN for Students Not in an LLC and All Commuter Students

On Thursday, August 25, 2016 all other new resident students (not in an LLC) and all commuter students will come on campus to check-in to the residence halls, visit informational booths, grab lunch, take their class photograph, and do much more!


There are other mandatory events throughout Opening Weekend - on Friday, August 26; Saturday, August 27; and Sunday, August 28.

All students should plan to attend all events on those four days. Commuter students will attend events and then go home each night.

The Charge In and Opening Weekend schedule is currently being determined and will be posted later in the spring. For more information, visit our Charge In page.
