POST-TRIP AND RESIDENCE HALL CHECK-IN INFORMATION:
When will I be back on campus? When can I move into my dorm?
Expect to arrive on campus sometime Tuesday afternoon or evening. Once you arrive, we’ll spend some time unpacking from the trip and cleaning up trip gear. Expect this process to take about 1-2 hours (the more time we work on Tuesday, the less time we have to clean Wednesday morning). After that, we’ll help check you into your room in your new Residence Hall. If you have stored items with us while you were on your trip, you’ll have access to get anything you need for the night (make sure to pack your linens so you have something to sleep on when you get back). Since you’ll be arriving at night to your new room, we ask that you keep your moving on Tuesday night to a minimum. There will be plenty of time to move the rest of your items for college in on Wednesday. If you will have parents meeting you Tuesday night, please let them know that actual “move-in” is on Wednesday even though you’ll be able to stay in your room Tuesday night.
When can I see my family and friends?
If you have family or friends in Portland and they’d like to see you the evening you arrive, let them know you should be free by about 9:00pm (though we expect to get done a bit earlier this year). The best way for them to find you would be for you to access your cell phone after you are finished cleaning up for your trip.
Wednesday morning clean-up and move-in:
On Wednesday morning, you’ll have breakfast with your group in Fields Dining Hall, then head up to clean up your gear at our equipment warehouse. Expect to be done with gear cleanup by 11:00 AM at the latest. You’ll be free to continue moving into your room at that time.
Orientation begins Wednesday afternoon:
Clean-up does not impact participation in Orientation. New Student Orientation officially kicks off at 4pm on Wednesday giving parents and students plenty of time to get settled into campus before the activities of NSO begin.
