Welcome to The Yard


Southern University's Welcome Week will kick-off Sunday, August 10 starting with Freshmen Move-in Day and the Freshmen Welcome Convocation Ceremony.


Freshmen check-in will start at 9 a.m. Sunday. Students will need to stop by the Smith-Brown Memorial Student Union to pick up their "Welcome Week" packet and receive their room assignment and then report to their designated Residence Halls.


After all the unloading, unpacking and becoming acquainted with your new roommates, freshmen are required to attend the Freshmen Welcome Convocation Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. in the F.G. Clark Activity Center. Parents are encouraged to attend.


The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management also invite all SU faculty and staff to join the ceremony to welcome the class of 2018.
