Welcome class of 2013!!

HRL is very excited for our next few days of Orientation! We can’t wait to meet the Class of ’13 and their families!

The First Year Area Res Life staff (in Boland that’s Sarah, Will, Rae, and Meghan-Rose and in Aquinas that’s Jackie and Karoline) is planning many exciting and fun programs for your first 40 days at The Hall.

Meanwhile, the staff in Housing Services is working hard to make room assignments for the incoming class. Room assignments will be made after July 4th. We assign students in Boland and Aquinas based on their Journey of Transformation class registration. This means we can’t accept roommate requests. The philosophy behind this method of assignments is to support the academic endeavors of our freshmen. Think about how nice it is to live in the same suite or on the same floor as the familiar faces you see in the classroom during the week. That means there’s a lot of opportunity for collaboration and continuing in-class discussions outside the classroom walls!

Later in July, all students will receive their room assignment and roommate information via the email address they supplied on their housing application. Stay tuned in for that email as it’ll also contain your parking pass for move-in day and important information from our recommended vendors.

Housing & Residence Life staff members will be present at Orientation. We’ll be at a table in the University Center if you still need to apply for housing and there will be a special informational session for parents on Day 1 of each Orientation at 11:15am (presented by our Director, Tara Hart.)

We hope you enjoy your time at Seton Hall during your visit. August 27th (move-in day for the incoming freshman class) will be here before we know it! Have a great summer!
