Charge In 2019 - Returning Students

Friday, August 23 - Sunday August 25

We hope that you are as excited as we are about the beginning of the Fall 2019 semester. Hit the ground running when you arrive on campus. Or — as we like to say — CHARGE IN!

Charge In Maps & Directions

To make for the smoothest Charge In possible, we’ve prepared maps and car signs that are specific to each residence hall. Charge In is an exciting and active time on campus. We’ve made several changes in order for us to provide you with the best move in experience possible. Please be sure to watch the video, follow the instructions on your map, and print your car sign.

Charge In Schedule of Events

The Charge In schedule is still being finalized, please check back often as the schedule is constantly being updated. You will receive a finalized schedule upon check in.
