Transcript of McDaniel Reslife Parent Preview
Your Student's Home On The Hill
1. Students get log in info for email and My First Year site
2. Students complete the roommate
survey by June 1 (hahaha)
3. Students are emailed in first
week of August with room
assignments and roommate
4. Start talking to each other. The
inevitable Facebook scouting. Who
is bringing what? Social media sites
about the Class of 2022 come to life
and people figure out who else lives
on which floors.
So How Does
It All Start?
...but, uhm, what
should we be
packing in that
cute lego car?
Things To Bring In The Car
Seasonal clothes, jackets, shoes, etc.
Toiletries and a carrier
Hamper or laundry basket and laundry supplies...and a lesson before they get in the car :)
Any prescription meds
Basic food prep/serving items
Things To Think About
Before The Car
Money access, on campus ATM is BB&T
Property Insurance, either home owner's or separate rental insurance
Prescription plan set up at a local pharmacy
Things To Leave At Home
Candles or incense
Air conditioner (unless you get it approved in advance)
Halogen lamps, hot plates, space heaters, toasters, toaster ovens, griddles, or anything that makes that kind of heat
Microwave/fridge (all rooms have one already, no extras from home)
What Will Move In Be Like?
We promise...it really does move fast
Cars enter campus, directed by signage, Campus Safety, and student greeters. Pick up the key at Klitzberg Pavilion in the main lobby. Cars will be directed to the residence hall.
You get directed to the building, Whiteford, Rouzer, or DMC. The person staying in the car should be sure to know the building and room number to make it easier :)
Wait for your turn to have a swarm of Peer Mentors descend on your vehicle to help get everything to your room ultra fast so you can get the car to a longer term parking spot for the rest of the day.
Yes...they really help carry everything.
Yes. It is awesome
No. They won't be there in May when it is time to move out. We're sorry.
See? They look ok don't they?
After move in, grab a meal in
Englar Dining Hall
End your day in Big Baker, with a message from President Casey to ceremonially start your student's McDaniel Career
