Time to get acquainted

When you get here in the fall and are all moved in, it's time to meet new people and get active on campus. This is where Academic Opening Day comes in. You'll gather in small groups with your fellow incoming Blugolds and learn a little more about the academic side of being in college. Academic Opening Day is required of all new first year students.
