Help Welcome New CAS Students on August 30

The first day of CAS New Student Orientation is just two and a half weeks away! Please support new students and the first-year experience team by creating a welcoming environment for the newest members of our community:

  • Wear your favorite Lewis & Clark gear or anything black and/or orange on August 30. We’d love to see everyone show their school spirit!
  • Help new students move into their residence halls. Your help can come in the form of carrying boxes from cars to rooms, providing directions, or simply greeting people with a smile. Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and you can sign up for a shift online.
  • Help us start a new tradition! Join us on the Glade at 2:30 p.m. on August 30 to be a part of the welcome tunnel. New students will pass through the human tunnel as they enter Pamplin for their NSO welcome event.
  • Be mindful about parking on August 30. The CAS campus will be extremely busy during move-in, especially around residence halls. Please park in the Fir Acres, Griswold, or graduate school lots rather than in the residential areas of the CAS campus.

If you have any questions about move-in day, please reach out to the first-year experience team, Jonathan Manz ( or Franchesca Spann (
