New Student Days Information for Parents & Families
Move in Day - Thursday, August 18, 2016
During New Student Days, families are strongly encouraged to participate in move-in day activities, in an effort to become better acquainted with Wittenberg.
An Opening Ceremony will take place in Wittenberg 's Health, Physical Education and Recreation Center (HPERC), and all families are invited to attend. Information on your student's advisor will be included in your "PARENT/FAMILY PACKET," which you will receive at your student's residence hall upon arrival. Students will also receive informational packets when they check in on Thursday, beginning at 8 a.m. Commuter students will meet at 11:30am in Shouvlin 105 where they will receive their packet; families are also encouraged to attend.
Should you need to depart immediately following the Welcome Ceremony, please share your good-byes beforehand as your student will leave the HPERC with his or her advising group following the program's conclusion.
We look forward to seeing you, and we want to extend a special invitation to attend Family Weekend. Welcome to Wittenberg!
