Tusculum College is celebrating the return of residential campus students this month in anticipation of the start of fall semester classes on Monday, Aug. 23.
Members of the Pioneer football team and athletic training students returned to campus on Wednesday, August 4, to move into their residence halls. Those upperclassmen who were selected last spring to serve as residence hall assistants returned last week as well for training and orientation activities. Student Orientation leaders, soccer and volleyball program participants will move into their rooms on Friday, August 13.
Student leadership groups, such as the President’s Society and the Student Government Association officers, and other students who participate in pre-term programming will return to campus the week of August 16, and all new students will be welcomed on Friday, August 20. Returning students will have their Move-in Day on Sunday, August 21.
Move-in Day for new students at Tusculum College is a campus wide event and includes staff members from nearly every department. To simplify the move-in process, Tusculum students and their parents check in at the Pioneer Arena where representatives from each department greet them. Once they have received their room assignments and keys, staff and faculty assist the students and parents in the actual move into their new residence.
Beginning on Monday, August 23, Welcome Week activities are planned for all students and include a student picnic, a pool party and “A Taste of Tusculum,” event, an organizational and activities forum which introduces students to opportunities to participate in various groups and organizations on campus.
Thursday, September 2, will be the official Opening Convocation, the ceremony formally opening the academic year and attended by students, faculty and staff.
