Get ready for your first official week as a Cornerstone student.

At Cornerstone University, we're excited to welcome you with the new student class this fall! From important campus arrival information to an overview of fun activities planned for the week, this is your place for up-to-date information about Welcome Week.

New Student Arrival Days

Various student arrival days are scheduled to accommodate early fall sports teams and other programs.

  • Aug. 12 | Men's/women's varsity soccer
  • Aug. 14 | Men's/women's cross country
  • Aug. 17 | Pathway program
  • Aug. 18 & 19 | Arrival Days for all remaining students

Move-In Schedules

Arrival days on Aug. 18 and 19 will be structured to host two different arrival groups each day. To determine which group you will be part of, please refer to your housing assignment (sent to your Cornerstone email address). Commuter students will move in on Aug. 19 (Group B). 

On each arrival day, all new students and each accompanying guest will be asked to complete a health screening form at check-in. We ask that all accompanying guests be immediate family members only.

Due to our efforts to adhere to state and local physical distancing guidelines, students must follow assigned move-in times.
