June 12, 2009-Belhaven College announces BC & U Day for Freshmen, an opportunity for all incoming freshmen to spend a night on campus, schedule classes with their faculty advisors and get to know the freshmen class. Held Thursday-Friday, June 25-26, BC & U Day prepares students for an easy transition into college. They will be able to get familiar with the campus, have a student I.D. card made, set up a library account, and set up an internet address-all before they arrive on campus in the fall. All incoming freshmen are strongly encouraged to attend this exciting first meeting of the freshmen class!

There is no cost for BC & U Day, but students should make sure they have paid the application fee, enrollment and housing deposits before they arrive. An outline of the weekend is below, with a more detailed schedule available the day of the event. For registration information, lodging specifics and an FAQ, visit the Freshmen BC & U Day website.
