NEW ALBANY, Ind. – Indiana University Southeast students did some heavy lifting today as the five on-campus lodges were filled with their newest residents. Move-In Day brought out parents, grandparents, siblings, and of course, students.
Forest, Meadow, Woodland, Orchard, and Grove Lodges are home to about 400 students each year. Each lodge features apartment-style housing for students with a Great Room, computer lab, laundry and vending services, and study areas. Each apartment includes a full kitchen, bathroom, and living room. There are one, two, and four-bedroom layouts available. Apartments are fully furnished and come with basic cable and wireless internet. The lodges opened at IU Southeast in 2008. On-campus housing has helped the University increase retention rates and has improved the diversity of the student body.
Students living on campus will have an opportunity to get acclimated with tomorrow, Aug. 21, at Induction Day. Students will meet faculty in their school, go to the Student Involvement Fair and Orientation Picnic, and participate in the Induction Ceremony. The day will open with a speech from Chancellor Ray Wallace and an IU Southeast tradition, the gauntlet, where all faculty and staff line up to high-five entering students. Estimated attendance for Induction Day this year is about 800.
Classes are back in session on Monday, Aug. 24. Monday is also the beginning of Week of Welcome with events for new students including free lunches, live music, social activities and more! For a full schedule of Week of Welcome events, visit the all campus calendar on the website.
