  • A government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport) for obtaining your Lobo ID Card.

  • Comfortable clothes and walking shoes.

When packing, keep in mind that parents/guests and students are in different locations during the program! Bring your personal items (extra clothes, toiletries) with you to check-in on Day One. The first thing that you will do with your stuff is place it in your residence hall room for the day (Sessions 1-9 only). A list of items to bring will also be included in a confirmation brochure that will be mailed to you prior to your session date. 

Are you staying overnight during your session? (Required for Sessions 1-9)

Don't forget to bring:

  • Personal toiletries
  • A change of clothing for over night stay at Freshmen Orientation
