Friend and Family Expectations

We welcome family members/friends/guests to accompany students into Hunter Hall to assist during the move-in process. We try to keep groups to no more than 5 - 7 persons.

As a courtesy to others, we ask that all parties provide ample space for other students and families checking into Hunter Hall. As move-in gets busy at times, we thank all students and families for their patience and positive energy throughout the process.
