University of Oklahoma Move-In 2019 — All you need to know!Sooner Parents
By Justin Koonz
August came and went with two days of move-in and many fun-filled days of events and relationships built. Residence Life definitely made an impact and will continue to do so throughout the year.
September brought even more ways to engage on campus and in the residential area with our Wellbeing Experiences, Roommate Contract process, and Student Leadership opportunities.
October will bring the settling in process for students living with each other. Please encourage your students to work out concerns with their roommates first and if they need assistance to contact their Resident Assistant. Residents have policies to follow, that can be found in our online Resident Handbook. Make sure your students are aware of all the policies.
Students will also start having midterms and exams/projects since it is mid semester already. Ensure that they are getting the help they need. We partner with on campus departments to provide resources if they are needed. Please check out KSU's academic support resources here.
Residence Life has a standing tradition of being involved in Homecoming. Homecoming this year is October 10th-15th. You can find more information here. We also have many Halloween events planned for students to engage in the holiday fun.
If you have yet to order a care package or other items for your student there is still time for finals and the year. Please check out what the Residence Hall Association has to offer here, under Care Packages and Linens Program.
If your student is still looking to get plugged in on campus, OwlLife is a great resource to see what is available — check it out here.
Make sure they are connecting with us on our social media platforms @HousingKSU and #MyLifeKSU as well to win prizes, contests and for all the latest in programming.
College move-in is approaching! Help your student prepare by making sure they have everything they need for a successful freshman year.
