Tentative Fall 2014 Orientation Schedule
Fall orientation begins in late August. You will move onto the campus three days before the start of classes. You will immediately be immersed into the student culture of Elizabethtown through a series of both academic and social events.
Move-in begins at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 22 * and fellow Blue Jays will be on hand to assist you in moving into your residence hall room.
Admissions and Residence Life Check-in will be a drive thru at Leffler Chapel and Performance Center. Residence Hall directions from the Chapel are posted on the orientation home page for your convenience. Once you move-in to your residence hall, please move your car to a designated area and be sure to visit the various information tables throughout Brossman Commons concourse. We invite you to join us for a complimentary brunch in the Marketplace.
Orientation continues throughout the fall semester through the coordinated efforts of Student Life and Academics. The First Year Seminar is instrumental in facilitating an extended orientation.
* Students participating in the Elizabethtown College Honors program will arrive on campus on Thursday, August 21, 2014.
