NDSU Move-In Day is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 21. Welcome Week for first-year students begins Monday, Aug. 23.
The NDSU campus will come alive again Saturday, Aug. 21, as hundreds of students move into the residence halls for the start of fall semester.
Volunteers will be on hand to welcome the Move-In Day arrivals and ensure the process goes smoothly. Families are encouraged to come to campus between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
“Move-In Day is an emotionally filled day of excitement. It represents a critical transition for our young adults. As a campus, we do everything we can to make it seamless and allow families the opportunity to say goodbye yet connect with the NDSU family. We love seeing a primarily empty campus transform into a vibrant community over the course of a few hours.” said Rian Nostrum, director of Residence Life.
Driving instructions have been supplied for each hall to allow the volume of vehicles to be spread between the various roadways coming to campus. Parents and students are urged to follow the instructions they have received and ignore their GPS once they get to Fargo.
NDSU Dining Centers open at 7 a.m. for students who move in early on Friday, Aug. 20. For Saturday’s Move-In Day, seven-day meal plans begin at 10:30am; students with a five-day meal plan, along with all family members and friends, can eat for a discounted rate of $8 per person on Friday and Saturday. The NDSU Food Court and Coffee Shops also will be open.
After students have moved in, they can head to the Memorial Union to get last minute supplies at the NDSU Bookstore, or assistance from NDSU One Stop (student account info, financial aid, tuition, payments, scholarships, etc.). Watch for afternoon activities, including an Ice Cream Social, Wellness Center Tours, Dining Center Tours and more.
Welcome Week activities begin for first-year students on Monday, Aug. 23.
