When and Where to Arrive
Commuter students should check in on Friday, August 23 at 3:00 pm at the First Year Information Tent, located on campus. Students will be assigned a residence hall room with a roommate for the FYF experience, and given a detailed schedule of events. Guidelines and logistics for staying in residence will be provided to students on Friday evening.
We encourage commuter parents to join their students on campus, if possible, on Friday participating in our special move-in day parent session: “Drop In Before Drop Off: Parents as Partners with Trinity” at 3:15 in the Dining Hall. Students will have a chance to say goodbye to their parents for the 5-day FYF experience following the BBQ.
