Hello students! With our Fall Welcome Week Team recently selected, we're excited about the opportunity to get to know a new class of students. That being said, please take the time to review the Fall Welcome week and move-in schedule and steps to take in order to prepare yourself for move-in day at Ship. Feel free to call our office or email us if you have any questions.
