Is everyone required to attend?
Each student new to The Woods is required to attend Orientation.  Even if you have attended College elsewhere, you will want to become familiar with our community and our traditions. During Orientation you will have the opportunity to ask questions and meet other students new to The Woods.

Should my parents come with me?
Your parents are welcome to attend the beginning informational session. This is a perfect opportunity for them to meet some of the staff and to get any remaining questions answered. After the initial meeting, the sessions will be student-focused.

I plan to live on campus. When can I move into the residence hall?
For the spring semester, you may begin moving in at 8:30 a.m. on the Sunday before classes begin. Students starting in the fall semester may begin moving in at 8:30 a.m. on the first day of Orientation. Keys may be picked up in the Le Fer lobby from 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

I am a commuter and have a job off campus. Will I be able to work that day?
While we understand the importance of work given today's living expenses, we do ask that you ask your employer not to schedule you for work during Orientation.

If I have other questions, who do I call?
If you have additional questions, please contact Jeff Malloy at 812.535.5219, Christina Thompson at 812.535.5173,  or email CampusLife@smwc.edu.
