Early Arrival

Marching band members, athletes, women participating in Rush, MAP sponsors, Residence Hall Association members and cheerleaders are just a few of the groups who typically request permission to check into the residence halls prior to the official check-in time.

If you are a member of a group that needs to check in early, your advisor or coach will provide information regarding your check-in date, time, location, and any fees associated with a group.  For example, Sorority Recruitment check in is on Sunday, August 6th from 11:00am to 2:00pm at the Performing Arts Center.
