STUDENTS MOVE TO CAMPUS THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
LA CROSSE, Wis.—It’s that time of year again! Students at Viterbo University will be moving to campus this week to officially begin another academic year. Move-in begins Thursday, Aug. 22 at 3 p.m. for those living more than 250 miles away and will be held Friday, Aug. 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for all first-year students.
New Student Orientation runs from Friday-Monday and includes campus tours, meetings with advisors, and socials. Sunday’s optional recreational opportunities include an afternoon bus trip to the mall, a community walk, sand volleyball, hiking in Hixon Forest, discussion groups, volunteer opportunity, vocal music auditions, or Fine Arts Center usher training.
Viterbo University officials believe this year’s new freshman student enrollment figures will be near or at record levels and that campus housing facilities will be close to capacity. Over 450 new students are expected. Enrollment was closed in early August. Total enrollment figures will not be determined until the end of the first week of school.
