If you are attending Arrival Day on Aug. 28, the first thing to do is check-in with the admissions team at the Bernice Hansen Athletic Center. You'll go over any missing paperwork and then receive a packet containing all the information you need to start your semester on campus. Check-in typically takes less than 10 minutes. After you meet with admissions, you can begin moving into your dorm room!
