Welcome to F&M! 

We know it seems ages away and you’re counting down the days, but the fall semester will be here before you know it! Stay tuned, because in early 2022 and throughout the summer months, we’ll be updating this page and reaching out with important to-dos and deadlines, need-to-know information and more. 

In the meantime, feel free to explore last year's information and get an idea of what to expect.

Class of 2025 Orientation

Countdown to the August 28th move-in!

In the next few days, you will receive:

  • Room assignment, roommate name and contact information, College House affiliation, and House Dean information 

  • A Sign-Up Genius link for you to select your move-in day time-slot

  • Your fall schedule, which you will further discuss with your academic advisor on Monday, August 30 as part of Orientation

Please continue to read our weekly emails going to your fandm.edu email account with important information and updates.

First-Year Fundamentals

Our College House dons and deans can't wait to welcome you to campus! While you won't know your College House until later in the summer, each House team has prepared video messages to explain how our unique residential system supports our students—academically and socially.
