Here we go! Thursday, August 22, is move-in day and the start of orientation for the Class of 2017. Fall Orientation is designed by HC students to prepare you for living and learning in the Honors College and IUP. It’s always a great time, but also useful.
Plan on arriving between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. You will have until 5:00 p.m. to get settled into your room, make the shopping run for anything that you forgot, and, mainly, to allow time for your family to feel like they are being helpful and say their goodbyes. Then the fun really begins!
Get off to a good start by finishing all the books on the list we sent before you arrive. There won’t be a quiz, but orientation leaders have planned activities around these readings. (Yes, it really will be noticed if you are the one who thinks Barbara Ehrenreich is a 19th-century German mathematician!)
Remember to pack:
Met your roommate on Facebook yet? Now’s a good time to connect. And, no, you don’t have to follow Aunt Matilda’s advice that you get matching bedspreads.
Be sure to join the CHC Class of 2017 group on Facebook, and check out the photos from the scavenger hunt at summer orientation. Comment on or like those that you feel best capture the spirit of the location, which will help determine the winner of the coveted Honors College Cup.
What will I do at orientation?—It’s a surprise!
Who will I meet at orientation?
Let the countdown begin!
