Fall Housing Information for 2016 EUREKANS

We have made special arrangements for EUREKA! participants to move their belongings from their EUREKA! housing to their fall semester housing assignment after the closing dinner on Friday night.  Please know that:

  • University Housing only allows EUREKA! students to transition to their fall housing  on one specific, assigned, date and time.
  • For EUREKA! 2016, the transition into fall housing will be Friday, July 29, 2016 between 8:00pm and 10:00pm
  • Only students and parents moving belongings will be allowed access to the dormitories. 
  • Students wishing to view the dorms will not be admitted.
  • Core Campus Honors housing is currently under construction.  At this time the University Housing does anticipate that it will be ready for our EUREKA! participants that have been assigned to Core Campus Honors housing to transition their belongings on July 29th, but this could change at any time due to construction delays, etc.  We CANNOT guarantee any housing assignment transition, however, Core Campus transitioning is especially vulnerable this year.

Important Freshman Orientation Information for 2016 EUREKANS

Since you have been accepted to Clemson University and the Honors College you are required to attend summer Freshman Orientation; we strongly recommend you attend an Honors Orientation session. If you are accepted into EUREKA!, please do not attend Freshman Orientation after June 24. 

  • The most practical session for EUREKANS is the June 23 - 24 session.
  • We do not allow students to be excused from assigned lab time to attend Freshman Orientation for the duration of the EUREKA! program.
  • We have reserved enough places in the June 23 - 24 orientation session for every 2016 EUREKA! student. 
  • You should register for orientations as instructed by the Office of Orientation (you'll get an orientation packet in the mail).
  • If you find that you are unable to register for the June 23 - 24 session (or earlier), please contact the Honors Office and we will make sure you receive one of the reserved spots.
