About Beach Days

In collaboration with our campus partners, Housing and Residential Life has planned virtual activities, workshops, and events that will prepare you for your residential life experience and equip you with the tools for personal and academic success. Although Beach Days is primarily virtual this year, residents will still have an opportunity to connect with their suitemate and build mates through building meetings, suitemate agreements, and social programs. We are excited for you to be here, and we welcome you to the Beach!
