Student overnight accommodations the night of the orientation program are provided as part of the program (there is no additional cost). We encourage students to stay on-campus as this is a great time to get to know fellow Sycamores in a more informal setting. It also gives students the opportunity to see what a night in the Residence Halls might look like.
Students will be provided with a twin bed and linen set (sheets, light blanket, pillow, and towels).
