Move-in Day and Welcome Week

The opening of each semester is a wonderful opportunity for you to immerse yourself in campus life and get to know your classmates before classes begin. Typically, this period is led by current students and staff who work to provide scheduled activities that will take you on a deep-dive into our beautiful campus and surrounding areas. We believe that Welcome Week is critical for your success as you transition as a new Montreat College student. In acknowledgment of COVID-19 and it’s potential impact on our move-in/welcome week activities, college staff is currently working to develop various plans for a smooth and safe start to our fall semester that also still reaches the goal of supporting your transition as a new Montreat College student.
