Newman Hall Move In 2023 takes place on:
Newman Hall is unique on campus in offering a Welcome Week designed to help your student successfully transition into campus life. Newman Hall Welcome Week is a week full of carefree time spent in community, making friendships, learning their way around campus, and settling into life away from family and home - before the whirlwind of the first week of classes hits. Having those extra days to meet new people, become familiar with campus, and feel comfortable in a new home-away-from-home is key to starting the school year with confidence and solid ground.
For families, moving in on a day when campus is calm and not chaotic gives you time and space to enjoy the experience of your student's exciting next step. Moving in on Saturday when no one else on campus is moving in - versus Thursday when tens of thousands of students and families are moving in - means no traffic, easy parking, empty stores, and plenty of time to focus on getting your student unpacked and settled in.
Newman Move In Guides are the best on campus, hands down! During Move In on Saturday, August 12 and Thursday, August 17, Move In Guides will meet you at your car, unload your vehicle, bring everything up to your room, and unload your belongings into your room so that you can get settled. You won't believe how easy and how fast a Newman Hall Move In is, thanks to the Newman Move In Guides!
Newman Hall Parents & Guardians, we invite you to join us at our Parent Welcome Sessions, held at 3:00 PM on Saturday, August 12 and Thursday, August 17.
These sessions are a great chance to meet Newman Hall and St. John's Catholic Newman Center staff, ask questions, and learn more about what your student can expect from life at Newman Hall. Hear from Newman Hall staff and returning parents about what to expect during your resident's transition to college life; the opportunities they will have to grow socially, intellectually, and spiritually; resources for navigating the hurdles of campus life, and more. Enjoy some refreshments and take a break during a busy, emotional day.
We invite you and your family to join us for the Newman Hall Family Farewell dinners on Saturday, August 12 and Thursday, August 17, following our Welcome Home Masses. Enjoy a complimentary meal with your family in our Dining Room along with your floormates, RA, and their families. The Family Farewell Dinner is a great celebration to end a bittersweet day and a chance to rest and refresh after move in day before traveling home.
Family Farewell Dinners will take place at 6:00 PM on Saturday, August 12 and Thursday, August 17.
