 Optional Overnight Program for June Freshmen Orientations 



The overnight Orientation session experience is a great way for students and families to make connections with SRU students and interact with SRU faculty and staff. Your evening stay will involve fun activities and social experiences in a very relaxed environment. We encourage you to take part in this wonderful opportunity.  Join us for a tour of the campus and town on our very own Happy Bus, a buffet dinner, an energizing scavenger hunt and free access to our award-winning recreation center!

SRU student guests (parents, relatives, etc.) over the age of 18 will be assessed a fee of $10.25 for their room in Watson Hall; new SRU students do not pay this fee.  The $10.25 accommodations fee will be collected upon check-in when you arrive on campus for Orientation.  Please do not submit this fee prior to your visit.  

Parents and guests will be given separate room arrangements from SRU students.  Please pack individually.
