What to Bring to Orientation

As you prepare for your first days on your new campus, we wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with some very important information.

Arrival and Parking

Students who are staying overnight - We have encouraged all of you to stay overnight with us, and those who have elected to stay overnight should arrive at the West Campus Residence Complex between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. for overnight check-in. There is ample parking for students (and parents) in the parking lots surrounding the West Campus Residence Complex and in the West Campus Parking Garage. Following check-in, students and their families will be directed to the Michael J. Adanti Student Center.

Students not staying overnight - All students and their families will be treated to coffee and pastries as they sign in on the first floor in the Michael J. Adanti Student Center from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Parking is available in Lot 12 located off of Crescent Street. Please visit the Directions to Campus page for directions and additional parking information.

What to bring

All students should bring, pens, a notebook, casual and comfortable clothes, a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and air-conditioned buildings, rain gear in case of inclement weather, a very comfortable pair of walking shoes, an open mind, a warm smile, and Southern spirit!

Students who are staying overnight should also bring an alarm clock, sheets, a blanket, a pillow, a towel, and personal toiletries. Please also fill out this form and bring it with you. Click here for the personal data sheet.
