Move-in and Orientation

Updates for Fall 2017 families coming soon!

Make plans to attend New Student Orientation—Mid August 

Whether a first-year student or transfer, living on campus or at home, New Student Orientation is where your students will meet their classmates and learn all about their new life as a Forester. It’s a must-attend experience!

New Student Orientation includes events for parents through lunchtime on Saturday. 

Move-in Day—Mid-August

Move-in for most students (except for fall athletes and First Connection students) begins in mid-August. Final dates will be announced early summer. Fellow Foresters will be on hand to help you move into your new home. If you’re looking for a list of what to bring (and what not to bring) you can explore that online.
