Welcome to the 2013 Fall Semester!

Have you made your travel plans?  Did you check your Boarding Pass for Move-In Weekend?  Have you looked at the First Week schedule?  It's time for the new school year!

In the next few weeks we will be posting LOTS of information to kick off the semester.  There are many deadlines to pay attention to, as well as information sessions for specific majors.  We'll remind you of all the resources available to you as a student and give you tips and strategies for how to plan your time for a successful semester, both academically and socially.

While you are checking things off on your To Do List, there is something very important to add:


Sometimes SPIRE stops working, especially during high traffic moments.  In past semesters, students have been unable to access their schedule and don't know where their class is meeting.  At the very least, take some screen shots and store them on your phone.  Don't miss the first day of class because you're not prepared.

Check the dates on your schedule.  SPIRE shows each week individually, so if you have Monday classes, they won't show up when you look right now since there are no classes on Monday, September 2.  Look at "Week of 9/9/2013 - 9/15/2013" and be sure everything is there.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone arrive on campus.  Don't forget to stay proactive and call or stop by the office if you want to make an appointment to meet with an advisor.
