Fall semester classes begin Monday, Aug. 31, 2015

New residential students move in on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015

Welcome Week is designed to help you become acclimated with campus life, settle in and meet new people. It’s also a time to kick back and have fun. Follow the link to Welcome Week above, and follow “Shenandoah University Student Life” on Facebook for Welcome Week events, photos, special offers and more.

Welcome Week 2015 begins on Move-In Day, Tuesday, Aug. 25, when new residential students check in at the residence halls between 9 a.m. and noon, and commuter students check in at the Brandt Student Center.

If you are a residential student, you and your family will be greeted by a team of Shenandoah faculty, staff and students, who will direct traffic, help unload vehicles and carry boxes and bags to your room. As soon as you are checked into your hall, head over to the Brandt Student Center, where you’ll find everything to begin your college career: technology, parking permit, meal plan, the business office, etc. This is called Navigator, and it’s a one-stop shop to help you on Move-In Day.

Commuting students should go directly to the Brandt Student Center on Tuesday, Aug. 25 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to join the residential students as staff work to help you get everything you need. By parking in the garage behind the student center, you can avoid traffic near the residence halls.

Later in the afternoon on the 25th, all new students participate in a New Student Convocation. Families and friends are encouraged to stay for the ceremony and the Family Farewell Dinner that follows. This dinner in the Allen Dining Hall gives everyone a chance to say good-bye, so you can officially begin your college experience.

Before classes begin on Monday, Aug. 31, you will be busy with academic sessions, a few mandatory meetings, community service projects, and lots of social gatherings. Conservatory students have auditions during this time, too.

We are working hard to finish the full schedule and will post it here later in the summer.
