What to (and not to) Bring to College
Packing up for college may seem like an intimidating task, but you don't want to wait until the last minute and spend your last few summer days indoors! One helpful tip is to pack for the seasons. Only bring what you will need for autumn to start you off! Here are a few ideas of what to (and not to) bring to Mount Union.

Optional Items
Leave at home
Bed linens (twin size)
Towels and wash cloths
TV and DVD player
Alarm clock
Hot plates
Sandals or slippers (for the bathroom and showers)
Pets (other than fish)
Personal items (soap, mirror, toiletries, etc.)
Toaster ovens/toasters
Space heaters
School supplies (notebooks, pens, planner, etc.)
Air conditioner

Move-in Dates
You've packed everything up, so now it's time to move in! The typical first-year student move-in day begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 23. Everyone moving in on that day will go directly to their assigned residence hall to pick up their keys and check in for Fall Orientation. When you arrive to campus, you'll see staff and signs directing you to buildings, so just follow their lead. If you live in Bica-Ross, Shields or Hoiles-Peterson halls, you will actually report to the Hoover-Price Campus Center (HPCC) to pick up your key. There will also be members of some student organizations there to help you unload, so take advantage of them!
For those of you who need to move in early (see the list of approved early move ins below), you will pick up your key from either your coach or the HPCC Information Desk between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the day you are able to move onto campus. If you have questions about that, please contact your coach or the Office of Residence Life at (330) 823-7288.
