Dear Incoming Freshmen,
The days of August are now dwindling down and all of you, however nervous or excited you are, will be joining me and the rest of the ESF community very soon. In these dwindling days packing is going to be inevitable so hopefully this entry on moving into Centennial Hall can help ease your stress and probably more importantly your parents as well.
Be mindful of the location of ESF and its surrounding area’s weather. Sure it’s 80 and sunny when you move in, but as the summer progresses through the fall and into the start of winter it’s very important to have adequate clothing and footwear. Be mindful of this when packing your clothes. It might be a totally different season the next time you go home. You’ll want to bring enough to get you through a season or two.
When move-in day does come around, our Mighty Movers will be more than willing to help you and your family move your belongings into your room. They will guide you to your room and have moving carts to pack your belongings into and wheel them into Centennial Hall. Microwaves and mini fridges are in every room so you don’t need to worry about bringing those. Bringing a TV might be a good addition for your dorm room since cable is provided in each room. Also, every room has Ethernet ports as well, making it acceptable to bring a desktop computer if you so choose. Some other things that you might want to think about bringing are décor for your room and some family photos or any mementos that may be of personal significance to you. Move-in day will probably be a little bit hectic but our staff here on campus as well as our Orientation Leaders will be working to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible for you and your family. The Orientation Leaders as well as staff members at ESF are going to be available to you throughout the week to help you adjust to your new home.
Hopefully these tips and information are helpful to you! If you have any questions on this information or any topic about moving in I might’ve forgotten, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck in your freshman year and we can’t wait to meet you!
