Welcome to Averett University!
Arriving for the Fall
The summer will be a whirlwind – enjoying high school graduation, relaxing and spending time with friends – but 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 when to arrive.
Many of our student-athletes in fall sports arrive before other students. Football players are one of the 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 will also arrive early, and your coaching staff will provide you with all of the information you need. 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.
Residential Transfer Students:
Transfer students living on campus will move in prior to the final transfer student orientation. Those students who attended the summer orientation will have extra free time to get settled, while those who didn’t attend will take care of business and register for classes.
Arrival Date: Sunday, August 17
Check-in Time and Location: 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. in the Student Center multipurpose room (second floor)

Residential Freshmen (Living On Campus):
On-campus students can move into the residence halls on Saturday, August 16 from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. Once you arrive, you will have one last chance to take care of any business that you need to before you receive your keys and move in. University offices will be temporarily set up at the check-in location to help make things a little easier for you.
Those students who attended the summer orientation program will have the day to move in and get settled. Parents and family members are invited to join us for dinner on campus that evening and for the official welcome of the Class of 2018. Students will spend the weekend with the freshmen class in a variety of fall opening events.
