Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) will welcome its first-year students on Saturday, Aug. 13, beginning at 7 a.m., when nearly 800 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.  A disc jockey will play music to greet new students and parents.

    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.

    A week of activities has been planned for the new students by the University College starting at 4 p.m. on Aug. 14.  

    Activities will culminate with the new students rite of passage ceremony on Aug. 19 at 10:45 a.m. at the Cleon F. Thompson Student Services Center.  With the pageantry similar to commencement, students will march from Thompson Center through WSSU’s historic arches to the ceremony in K.R. William Auditorium.  The activity will symbolize the student’s passage into young adulthood and the WSSU community.   

    Classes begin on Monday, August 22.
