On August 16, 2018, upwards of 1800 freshmen students will move into our residence halls from 9am - 5pm.  After summer orientation, this is our freshmen students’ first experience on campus and as such presents a great opportunity for us to welcome them to the UTC Community!

This is an awesome opportunity for faculty, staff, upperclassmen students and our UTC Community to help freshmen students and their families move into the residence hals.  In addition to being helpful, this is a great opportunity for us to make a positive first impression, build goodwill, and start building relationships with our incoming freshman students!!
