Nearly 750 Freshmen expected for Move-In Day on August 9
Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) will welcome its first-year students on Saturday, Aug. 9, beginning at 8 a.m., when nearly 750 students are expected to arrive on campus for "Move-In Day.""
Members of WSSU's campus fraternities, sororities, student social and civic organizations will assist students as they move in while a parent's retreat featuring free refreshments and massages is scheduled 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Cleon F. Thompson Student Services Center.
In March, April and May, WSSU hosted a series of new student orientation sessions across the state and on campus that drew several hundred new students. Those orientations allowed incoming freshmen, other students and parents to complete business processes prior to their arrival to campus. WSSU will also operate a One-Stop Service Center, which will serve as a central location for students and their families to complete any enrollment, registration, tuition payments, housing and health services business.
RAMDITION, a week-long student orientation of classroom sessions, campus life workshops, and social activities designed to ease the transition into the collegiate experience, is planned for the new students starting at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, August, 10th.
RAMDITION activities will culminate with a "Through the Archway" rite of passage ceremony starting 10 a.m. on Aug. 16 with the Ram Walk from the clocktower on campus. Filled with pageantry similar to commencement, students will march through WSSU's historic arches to a special ceremony in K.R. Williams Auditorium. The activity will officially welcome the new students into the Winston-Salem State University Ram Family.
Classes begin on Wednesday, August 20.
