Information for Parents & Families

Move in Day - Thursday, August 16, 2018

During New Student Days, families are strongly encouraged to participate in move-in day activities, in an effort to become better acquainted with Wittenberg.

Move-In for residential students will take place Thursday morning between 8:00am and 11:00am and orientation activities will take place all day. An Opening Ceremony will take place in Wittenberg's HPER Center Arena, and all families are invited to attend. Commuter students will meet at 11:30am in Shouvlin 105 where they will receive information needed for the first few days on campus; families are also encouraged to attend.

We look forward to seeing you, and we want to extend a special invitation to attend Family Weekend. Welcome to Wittenberg!
