Fall Welcome | Welcome Week

If you’re starting Calvin in the fall, our Fall Welcome programming will help with the transition. This includes specific programming starting in mid-August*. Check your New Student Portal for your programming track and schedule.

  • Fall Athlete Move-in and Welcome (August 15–16)
  • International Student Move-in and Welcome (August 26–29)
  • IMPACT Move-in and Welcome (August 27–29)
  • Adult/Continuing Education Student Welcome (August 29–30)
  • Transfer Student Welcome (August 29–September 2)
  • Welcome Week (August 29–September 2) for new first-year students

Living on campus? Move-in Day is the morning of Thursday, August 29. Keep an eye on your email for information and instructions! Your family members are welcome during move-in, and our team will be on hand to help make your arrival as smooth as possible—and fun.

*Fall athletes (for only these teams), IMPACT students, international students, and some Wilderness Trips have move-in days adjusted to their programming.
