    Now that you're moved in, it's about time you checked out your new digs and got familiar with campus. There are so many different things to try, from getting food at the Wall and seeing the skyline from Morgan Hall, to getting to your classes on the first day! Don't worry folks - we've got you covered when it comes to all things campus.
