Arriving for the Fall
The summer will be a whirlwind ride – enjoying high school graduation, relaxing and spending time with friends. It will be over before you know it! By the time you have made it through this entire book and completed all of the tasks, it will be time to join us for the fall semester. Below is everything you need to know about arriving for the fall semester.
Many of our student-athletes in fall sports arrive before other students. Football players are one of our first groups to arrive on campus.
Check-in Time and Location – Watch for more information from the coaching staff regarding your check-in location and time.
Other Fall Student-Athletes:
Other student-athletes participating in fall sports (men’s soccer, women’s soccer and volleyball) will also arrive early for the fall semester. Your coaching staff will provide you with all of the information you need about your arrival. Once you check-in, you will spend some time with the New Student Orientation staff reviewing fall opening events and taking care of any final things you need before classes start.
