Video: Move-in day for WSSU’s Class of 2021

Winston-Salem State University’s (WSSU) Class of 2021 didn't let a little rain stop them on their first big day. More than 950 freshmen and their families arrived on campus for move-in day starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12.

As families drove up to their residence halls, they were greeted by WSSU’s “Move-In Crew,” dozens of upperclassmen, including students from the Renaissance Minority Male Mentoring Program, Ramdition legacy leaders and student-athletes. The crew welcomed families, and helped unload vehicles and haul all the essentials up to new students’ rooms.

The class of 2021 is WSSU’s largest freshman class in nearly a decade. Ramdition, WSSU’s weeklong student orientation, starts on Sunday, Aug. 13, and continues through Saturday, Aug. 19, with the Through the Archway. Classes at WSSU start on Monday, Aug. 21.

WSSU offers free textbooks to all undergraduate students

Winston-Salem State University has partnered with Barnes & Noble College to implement BNC First Day® Complete, a course material delivery model that will drive student success by ensuring all students are prepared to begin learning on the first day of class.

First Day® Complete, an innovative course material delivery model, addresses equitable access, convenience, and affordability across all courses at an institution by bundling the cost of course materials into tuition and ensuring students have all their materials for the semester available on or before the first day of class. WSSU will cover all associated expenses so that no additional costs will be passed on to students.
