From the Desk of the Resident Director

Greetings Pioneers!

Welcome to Melcher Hall! We are excited to have you staying with us for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year. I hope you have had a relaxing summer and have found some time to relax and refresh. 

As summer winds down and the fall semester approaches, please be sure to keep in mind the following items:

Room Assignments: Room assignment letters were sent out in mid-July to your email account. If you do not know your roommate at this point, I encourage you to make contact prior to move in. This will aide in making sure you aren’t doubling up on common use items and to begin building that relationship now.
Plan Ahead: Please be sure to plan ahead for move-in weekend. New student move-in begins Saturday, August 29th. Returning student move-in begins Sunday, August 30th.  A vast majority of Melcher residents are new students, thus we anticipate that Saturday will be very busy. Also, please take special note of the move-in times and plan to arrive during those time slots. Arriving outside designated move-in times may result in needing to wait until a staff member is available and you will not get assistance from the members of Welcome Crew.
Check Out Your Resources: Please be sure to check out the following materials for more general on-campus living information. The Welcome Home Newsletter and the Guide to Living On Campus are two publications that have great in-depth information about living on campus. 
Bring Your Personal Data Form: During the check in process you will need to turn in your Personal Data Form. Please be sure to print and fill this form out in its entirety prior to arriving on move-in day. This will greatly expedite your check-in process. Forms can be found here.
Loft Reservation: If you would like to reserve a loft please follow this link. Lofts are $150 for the year with the option of a shelf ($15 more). If you order a loft prior to August 1st, it will be in your room upon arrival.
Move-In Schedule:

New and transfer student move-in:

Saturday, Aug. 29, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
Continuing student move-in:

Sunday, Aug. 30, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 31, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 1 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Have a relaxing rest of your summer! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at

Every day is a great day to be a Pioneer!
