Get Organized. Being organized already lessens the mess that move-in day can bring. During your free time you will want to unpack what you can if you weren’t able to on move-in day. The more you have unpacked, the more your room will feel like home.

Be Prepared. Welcome Week is full of events, so be prepared! You may be on your feet for most of the day, so wear comfy shoes and plan your outfits according to the weather! You may want to bring a small bag to carry with you to put items in such as your I.D. and keys as well as a snack and something to drink.

Get Involved. You have probably heard that a million times, but it cannot be stressed enough! Welcome Week is a great time to get involved. Do your best to attend these activities. SOC Talks and Residence Hall Meetings may sound boring to you, but it is so important that you attend them! You will participate in activities and find out who your neighbors and friends are all while getting familiar with where you will be living.
