New students are expected to arrive at Bryn Mawr on Wednesday, August 28, 2013. Students report to their residence halls (non-residents report to Erdman Hall), beginning at 8:30 a.m. Lunch is provided for students and their guests. The Customs Program starts with the College Welcome at 4:30 p.m. Also, programs for families, parents and guardians of new students will be offered that afternoon. Guests depart campus before dinner, when students meet with their Customs groups. Customs Week continues throughout Monday, September 2, which is Labor Day. Classes begin Tuesday, September 3, 2013.
It is not essential that you arrive at Bryn Mawr before noon on Wednesday, August 28. Arriving that afternoon or evening is perfectly all right, particularly if we know when to expect you. You will miss some welcoming and discussions in the mid-afternoon, but those are not as important as a night's sleep to some new students. If you are planning to arrive late on Wednesday, August 28, and certainly if you cannot arrive until a later date, please email us at email@example.com, telephone us at 610-526-5375, or write to let us know. Customs will plan to welcome you when you come to campus.
Cross Country, Field Hockey, Soccer, Volleyball
All students planning to compete in a fall varsity sport should contact the appropriate head coach directly.
Cross Country - Coach Jason Hewitt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Field Hockey - Coach Marci Scheuing (email@example.com)
Soccer - Coach Erin DeMarco (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Volleyball - Kathy Tierney, Director of Athletics and Physical Education (email@example.com)
Varsity athletes for fall sports should plan to arrive Sunday, August 18th for pre-season training and practice.
Special considerations for move-in with regard to exceptionally long distance travel can be coordinated through each head coach.
International students who play a Fall sport should plan to arrive on Sunday, August 18th and then participate in International Orientation when it begins Monday, August 26.
All incoming international students (Non U.S citizens who are on U.S Non-immigrant visa) are required to attend the International Students Orientation (ISO). The ISO program is designed to give students an overview on United States immigration regulations; give students some time to recover from jet lag, meet and socialize with other international students, to become familiar with the local community and to give the students insight into adjusting to life in the United States. ISO activities continue through the week and engage the student through the day and evening. Many preparations for life at Bryn Mawr specific to international students, for example, those pertaining to the student visa, are included in ISO.
Participants arrive, are welcomed and start to move-in on Monday, August 26. New students sleep in their new rooms on campus. Upperclasswomen live with the students in the residence halls and join the profession staff and faculty in helping new students get started at the College.
Parent programs are offered Monday, August 26. Complete daily schedules for ISO and Customs Week will be posted early in May.
Room assignments and roommates will be announced by the Office of Residential Life on or about August 1. We remind all students arriving early not to get too settled until conferring with their roommates about the shared use of the room, furniture rearrangement, etc.
Please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about your arrival.
