What to Expect on Move-In Day

Information for August 14 and August 21.

You’ll be greeted upon arrival with helpful instructions for parking, checking in, and unloading belongings. Don’t worry – you’ll experience warm Benedictine hospitality as teams of students, faculty, and staff help carry belongings to your residence hall room! There will also be an opportunity to complete any final checklist items (visit with Financial Aid, take your student photo ID, etc.).

Do you have last-minute questions or concerns? Stop by the Benedictine College Parent Association (BCPA) table in the Dining Hall. We’ll be happy to help connect you to the right college personnel to assist you.

After getting settled in, you and your family are invited to a complimentary barbecue. There will be time to shop for last-minute necessities before you attend a very special Family Send-Off Mass at 4 p.m. Finally, around 5:15 p.m., you’ll say your goodbyes outside St. Benedict’s Abbey Church before Jack joins fellow classmates for dinner in the Dining Hall.
