Lodging and Overnight Program

Orientation Overnight Info

In addition to the regularly scheduled orientation program, you can choose to participate in either the May 30 or May 31 overnight stay.  Our overnight program allows you to experience a night in one of our first year center residence halls and meet other students. Here are some details to the evening, if you choose to participate.

Registration will take place between 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM in the Olin Plaza.  (Signs labeled “Event Parking” will be placed along Main Street to guide you to the registration tables).

Below is a checklist containing items you should pack for a more comfortable stay:

  • You will need to bring your own linens to fit a twin sized bed (the same size bed you will have in your dorm when you arrive for school in August) Sleeping bags are an alternative to linens if you feel it is an easier option.
  • A pillow
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, soap, shampoo, deodorant, etc.)
  • Wash cloth and bath towel
  • A change of clothes for the day of May 21 or May 22 Orientation
  • Athletic clothes
    Some of your night will include walking around campus and you will also be given the opportunity to participate in sports activities. *(Please wear comfortable footwear when arriving for orientation)*

The overnight halls will be arranged by gender (males and females will be in separate wings of the dorm building).   If you have any questions about the overnight stay please feel free to contact Student Activities at (610)-409-3608. We look forward to your arrival.
