Heading to the Heights

Le Moyne’s Fall Arrival is the culmination of Le Moyne’s summer orientation for all new first-year residential and commuter students.  It is required of all members of the incoming class and consists of three days of opportunities for the Class of 2018 to get to know each other better – and get to know us – before returning students arrive on Sunday. 

This year’s Fall Arrival will take place on Friday, August 22 – Sunday, August 24.  Friday’s activities will begin with move-in for residential students (7:00 a.m. – Noon) with move-in times assigned to students based on the location of their housing assignment.  (All residential students should have received their housing assignment and time at their Le Moyne email address.) 

Commuting students and their families will attend a special welcome session on Friday morning as well.  These activities will be followed by the President’s Picnic and New Student Convocation before families depart on Friday.   Organized Saturday and Sunday activities for the Class of 2018 will focus on all aspects of life at Le Moyne so that you will be fully prepared to begin college life. 

As with Summer Welcome, you will be guided through Fall Arrival by upper division student members of the Orientation Committee (the OCs) – only this time, you’ll see many more OCs on campus, moving you in and helping you find your way.  It’s a fun and energetic beginning to your Le Moyne experience!  As you know, the OCs will be your GO-TOs for any questions you have during Fall Arrival.  They love being a part of Le Moyne, and they want you to feel that way, too.

Every evening, the OCs have planned a variety of great social events that will appeal to everyone.  These may range from game shows, performances and movies to fun athletic competitions and local trivia.  The goal of each evening activity is to give you time to relax and get to know your classmates and floormates.  Classes will begin on Monday, August 25.

Watch for detailed information soon via Guidebook and email to give you and your family the specifics of your Fall Arrival schedule!
