Schedule for Athletes & Other Early-Returning Students

If you are eligible to return to campus housing prior to August 22, you will be contacted by your coach or organization with the specific date you will be moving to campus. Despite an early move in date, all new students are required to attend the WOW Weekend program and activities.

Note to parents: We understand that you may be traveling a great distance to drop off your early-returning student, so it may be difficult to return for WOW Weekend parent orientation activities on August 22. Therefore, we will hold a few abbreviated parent orientation sessions to coincide with early move-in dates. You are welcome to attend the orienation activities on August 22 if your schedule and location allow.

  • August 14 from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. for parents of football players
