Students participate in one of three sessions:
Registration opens in late March. It is on a first come, first served basis. Don't be late!
Check-in on Day One for your Overnight Stay
Check in at Goodman Hall (#11 on campus map) between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. All students are required to stay in Goodman Residence Hall. For your overnight stay, you will be assigned a roommate. This is a good way to meet other new University of the Sciences students.
