Discuss the Common Reading Book – The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Interact with the Common Reading blog to share and discuss your opinions with other incoming first-year students, current CHC students, staff, and faculty. By the time you arrive for New Student Orientation, you will have completed The Round House and made contributions to the blog. Look for continued engagement opportunities with the Common Reading throughout the UO community in the upcoming year.
Monday, September 18th: Early Move-In
As a Clark Honors College student you may move into on-campus housing on September 18th, prior to the standard university move-in day on September 21st. This early move-in happens the day before the CHC's new student orientation (NSO) begins to give you a chance to get settled.
You will be charged a daily fee by UO Housing for each of the three days that you are in the residence hall prior to normal university move-in. This fee includes meals and generally ranges from $48 to $85 per day, depending on the room type and meal plan you have signed up for.
This orientation, specific to Clark Honors College students, will introduce you to other new students, honors college faculty and staff, your CHIP group, and returning student CHIP leader. You will engage in group discussions, learn about opportunities and resources available to you, and eat some ice cream.
September 21st–24th: Week of Welcome
