Mark your calendar!

  1. Foreign Language Placement exam: Be sure to take the placement exam prior to June 1. You DO NOT take the placement test if you took only one year of a language while in high school or plan to change the language you will study in college from the one you studied in high school. Do not worry about the test but don’t procrastinate it either!http://www.albright.edu/mfll/placement/placement_main.html
  2. Move-In Day – Thursday, August 21. Bring your boxes but not your muscles! We will provide all of the manpower to move you into your dorm! Following Move-In, we will host our Convocation ceremony for you and your families, officially marking your matriculation and starting the new year.
  3. Welcome Weekend – August 21-24. Albright’s POPs (Peer Orientation People) will turn Albright’s campus from a new place to home in just a few days. Be prepared for games, information and a lot of fun!
