August 8-12 Logistics (Wave 1):

*Note: Previously Aug. 9-13 but changed due to football schedules.

This Whitewater Rafting Voyage is open to all incoming fall students. However, this Voyage is designed to allow incoming football players a chance to go on a Voyage that doesn't conflict with practice schedules. Local students are encouraged to participate if they can accommodate a living situation between the end of this Voyage and new student orientation.

**Note: All other fall athletes who are going on this Voyage will not be able to move in to the dorms until Aug. 15. All other students not involved in fall sports will be able to move in on Aug. 21, when new student orientation begins.

Times are subject to change.
