When: Thursday, June 6, 2013, 8 a.m. - Saturday, June 8, 2013 8 a.m.
During Orientation, you will meet with your academic adviser and advising group, finalize your class schedule, become acquainted with faculty members and administrative personnel, sign up for a room in a residence hall, get familiar with the campus and meet a few hundred classmates!
WHEN TO ARRIVE
Pre-Orientation activities will begin Thursday, June 6, with a 7 p.m. worship service at College Church of the Nazarene on campus, followed by a dessert reception for families and a late-night activity for students. Thursday’s activities are not required, but they will give you a chance to begin meeting your fellow classmates and will be especially helpful if you are still looking to find a roommate. If you are arriving Thursday evening, you should first check in at the front desk in Ludwig Center to receive your Orientation housing assignments and keys.
Official check-in for Orientation — including those who arrived on Thursday — will be on Friday, from 8:30–10:45 a.m. in the Centennial Chapel. If you have immunization records and your official, final transcripts, you may bring them with you to check-in. Otherwise, plan to submit them before the first day of classes. See the enclosed schedule for arrival details if you are planning to take ACT or CLEP exams. Orientation will conclude by 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 8.
Free Orientation housing will be provided in the residence halls for students and parents. (Please note that students will be assigned housing separate from their families.) Linens (pillow, blanket, sheets, towel, and washcloth) will be supplied. Room keys may be picked up in Ludwig Center on Wednesday or Thursday from 8 a.m.–midnight, and on Friday morning in the Centennial Chapel during the official check-in hours. After Friday morning, housing information will be available at Ludwig Center’s Information Desk.
