Orientation: First-Year Checklist


Throughout the summer:

  • Study the Orientation schedule and your personal schedule for auditions, tests, and practices, so you don’t miss anything.
  • Call your mentor if you have questions. If you don’t know your mentor, contact Simone Stewart or Mary Dickerson dickersonm AT william.jewell DOT edu 
  • Write or call your new roommate. Figure out who’s bringing what. This will save you space in your room and time on move-in day.
  • Pay your $300 Enrollment Fee. This can be done through the Admission Office.
  • Take care of financial obligations with the Business Office and the Financial Aid Office by July 1st.
  • Buy stuff for your room (XL twin-size sheets, food, posters, whatever). Call your mentor for suggestions.


 August 22 (First day of Orientation & Move in!)

  • Move in. Residence Halls open at 8:00 a.m.
  • Find the nearest bathroom—maybe even use it, that’s up to you.
  • Matriculate. Your mentor can tell you where to go if you aren’t sure.
    •  If you took care of your financial obligations prior to August 2, head to Yates-Gill College Union and go through Matriculation Express. It’s painless.
    •  If you haven’t, go to the Business Office in Curry.
  • If you haven’t already, have your ID picture taken at Cardinal Services located in Curry. This picture will be with you for four years.
  • Pick up your parking sticker in Yates-Gill College Union Atrium and immediately put it on your car.
  • Buy books. Do this in the bookstore. This is exactly why we call it a bookstore.
  • Attend all Orientation events.
  • Call your mentor if you need anything.
