Beginning in the spring and continuing throughout the summer months, incoming students can expect to receive a variety of mailings from College offices such as Admissions and the Dean of Students Office. In addition to the printed versions received at a student’s permanent home address, the DSO will make all mailings available electronically on this page so that they are more readily accessible for students and their families, particularly those who may be traveling for a prolonged period during the summer.
