UNC Asheville embark Orientation

UNC Asheville embark Orientation

***Attention Incoming Freshmen***

Since all freshman embark Orientation participants will spend the night on-campus, don't forget to pack for your overnight stay! Below is a packing list to help make sure you have all you need for embark Orientation:

* Sheets (twin/XL twin) or sleeping bag

* Pillow

* Towel, washcloth, toiletries

* Pajamas

* Change of clothing for the next day

* Wear comfortable shoes: you will be walking to various locations around campus throughout your time at embark, so it’s important to keep comfort in mind when deciding what to pack for embark Orientation.

* If rain is forecast, bring an umbrella. We will have ponchos available for you to use, but with the heavy rains experienced throughout Western North Carolina in the past month, an umbrella is a good choice.

* If you have not yet had the opportunity to submit your immunization records or your final transcripts, please bring copies of them with you to embark Orientation

* A pen and something to take notes with throughout the day. You will receive a folder at check-in with all of the corresponding handouts for embark Orientation, but it's best to be prepared to take additional notes as well.

* You will be responsible for keeping up with your orientation packet, so if you prefer a tote bag to carry your folder, you'll need to bring one with you.
