What you need to know about Fall Connection 2013
Residence hall students
Information you and your family need for Fall Connection, Augustana's orientation experience for new students, will be waiting for you at your assigned residence hall when you check in between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013. When you report to your assigned residence hall, Residential Life staff will provide an information packet with materials you will need for your orientation to Augustana. Athletes who arrive early will have Fall Connection materials delivered to their rooms.
Information you and your family need for Fall Connection, Augustana's orientation experience for new students, will be waiting for you at the College Center Loft Lounge when you check in between noon and 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013. The College Center is located on the southwest corner of 7th Avenue and 38th Street, with parking in Centennial Hall lots on the north side of 7th Avenue.
All students will receive the following items in their orientation packet:
1. Campus maps. You will receive two maps in your packet: a campus map will help you navigate the grounds of your new home, and a second map will direct your family to their Thursday meeting with your first-year advisor.
2. Fall Connection schedules. We will provide a detailed schedule of all Fall Connection events, as well as events scheduled for new students during the week following. You'll also find a second schedule listing only Thursday events, an easy reference for your first day on campus.
3. Your personal name tag. This is more than just a name tag because it lists your advising group number and other important information not provided elsewhere. It's yours to wear throughout Fall Connection to identify you as a student, to help others learn your name, and to identify your assigned advising group, meeting locations, and the names of your peer mentor and first-year advisor. All of this information is printed on your name tag so you can refer to it at any time. Please place the name tag around your neck as soon as you receive it.
