What to Bring

For our June Orientation sessions, all students, including students planning to commute in the fall, are required to stay on campus throughout their assigned Orientation session. Housing will be provided for students in the freshman residence halls. Students should bring a sleeping bag, pillow, bath linens, an alarm clock and fan, at least one change of clothes and toiletries.

In June, parents may elect to stay at one of our local hotels; parents who choose to stay on campus will be assigned a private room (with shared bath) in an on-campus apartment. Linens will be provided for parents staying in the apartments. Parents are also strongly encouraged to bring an alarm clock. It should also be noted that there are no televisions or microwaves provided.

There will be an additional $50 charge for each parent who requests overnight housing on campus.

**Please note that there is limited housing available for parents during Orientation and we may not be able to accommodate all requests.**
