New Student Days Information for Parents
Move in Day - Thursday, August 20, 2015
During New Student Days, parents 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 parents are invited to attend. Parents are also invited to enjoy lunch anytime between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on the Chapel lawn (seating will be available indoors as well as outdoors, pending weather). Information on your student's advisor will be included in your "PARENT PACKET," which you will receive at your son's or daughter's residence hall upon arrival. Students will also receive informational packets when they check in on Thursday, beginning at 8 a.m.
Should you need to depart immediately following the Opening 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!
