My student wants to go on a Leading Edge trip but we can't come up twice for move-in.  What do you recommend?

It is not necessary for a student's family to come to campus more than once for move-in. If your student applied to participate in The Leading Edge and has a confirmed spot on one of the trips, plan to come to campus on the first move-in day. The residence halls will be open for move-in between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. New students will meet their designated LE trip leaders early Sunday afternoon and participate in afternoon and evening events. Participants will depart on their respective trips on Monday morning and return to campus on Friday. Students will have the opportunity to settle in to their rooms when they return on Friday. The Schedule of Events for move-in day is available here.


The move-in day's schedule is exactly the same on the following Saturday, which is the date to come to campus if your student did not choose to participate in The Leading Edge. Also on Saturday, between 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM, ALL INCOMING STUDENTS (first-years, transfers, international students, regardless of arrival date) officially CHECK-IN to the University during a process that takes about 30-45 minutes to complete as they follow a path through the Early-Fielding Building.
