Fall Welcome 2021

Orientation 19

Fall Welcome Weekend: August 28-29, 2021

Fall Welcome is when The University of Scranton comes alive! This experience is centered on move-in, particularly first year student Move-In, and the formation of the Scranton community that has been eagerly awaiting its newest members, the Class of 2025, all summer. This year, Fall Welcome weekend is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29, 2021.

Fall Welcome Weekend Schedule

We are hard at work developing the schedule for Fall Welcome weekend 2021. Please check back here in early August for more information regarding the Fall Welcome weekend schedule. 

Fall Welcome weekend is designed to welcome our newest students to our Scranton community and allow our new students to get to know one another. Events typically include:

First-Year Move In
We anticipated inviting students living on-campus to arrive to campus on Saturday, August 28. Please refer to your move-in packet for arrival times and procedures (packets are typically sent out in early August). 

Royal Olympics
All incoming students are invited to visit to participate in a variety of team-building activities to get to know other members of their class. This highly interactive program is currently scheduled take place on Sunday, August 29!

Fall Move-In Volunteers

Any upper division student interested in helping out the University community and moving in a day early can volunteer to be a Fall Move-In Volunteer. Volunteers are required to participate in a four-hour shift and they receive all meals until their meal plans are activated as well as access to their rooms early.

Unfortunately, first-year students moving in early are unable to participate.

Sign-ups for Fall Move In 2021 are now open! This is a first come first served opportunity, so be sure to register as soon as you are able.

The form will be open until August 13, 2021 or until we reach our limit of volunteers. If you have any questions, please contact orientation@scranton.edu.
