Everything during Fall Orientation is designed to help you become more comfortable and more likely to have a positive transition to college life. You'll learn about your college resources, expectations, and learn tips to be academically successful. For these reasons, Fall Orientation participation is highly encouraged, although it is not mandatory.

Residence halls open at 8 a.m. on move-in day. Go directly to the residence hall to which you are assigned and plan to have everything moved into your room by around 2 p.m., as the opening ceremony begins at 2:30 p.m. There will be lots of Cobbers willing to help you and your family move your belongings on move-in day.

Those who live far away, participate in fall sports, or have unique circumstances may be able to move in early. To inquire about early move-in, contact Residence Life at 218.299.3872.

Representatives from Admission, the Business Office, Dining Services, Financial Aid, Counseling Center, Disability Services and Health Services, Parking Services, Registrar's Office, and Residence Life will be available to assist you between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on move-in day in the Atrium in Knutson Campus Center.

If you have NOT had your ID photo taken, you will need to have your photo taken between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on move-in day in the Atrium at Knutson Campus Center, or any other day at the Dining Services office in the Knutson Campus Center. 

Parents are asked to leave campus around 3:30 p.m. Orientation Clubs will gather at 4 p.m.
