Tentative Fall 2013 Orientation Schedule
Fall orientation begins in late August. You will move onto the campus four 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 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 22* and fellow Blue Jays will be on hand to assist you in moving into your residence hall room.
After you check-in to your residence hall, please visit the orientation registration and check-in tent, which will be located on the terrace outside of Brossman Commons. Various information tables will be set-up throughout Brossman Commons for your convenience and 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 Wednesday, August 21.
