The office of new student programs is gearing up to welcome the freshman class of 2018 to the Miner family. Students will arrive on campus to move in Sunday, Aug. 12. Opening Week will officially kick off that evening with a “Party at the Puck” picnic. Activities will continue through Saturday, Aug. 18.

Throughout the week, students will:

  • Complete an academic workshop, learn about campus and college life, participate in a team-based experiential learning project, and discover what it means to be a Miner.
  • Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, Aug. 17, to watch the races through campus and cheer on new students.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to attend any events during Opening Week. Campus participation during orientation sends a strong message of support to new students.
