Schedule – Sunday

Overview

Experience life on campus! Students arriving on Sunday have the option of spending the night in a residence hall with a host student. There will be plenty happening on campus, from the game room to the coffee house, from programs to favorite hangouts.
Hosts are matched by academic and extracurricular interests whenever possible.

Parents and family members are invited to join their students for the first part of the evening, and then we’ve planned a few options in the evening just for you.

Students staying with a host (and their guardians) should complete the Overnight Hosting Agreement and bring it to Check-In on Friday evening.
