All students who are new to HPU are expected to attend Jacket Journey. Jacket Journey features opportunities to learn about campus resources, attend social events, participate in HPU traditions, and more!
Jacket Journey will occur Friday, August 20 – Sunday, August 22, 2021.
New students will move into the residence halls and apartments on Thursday, August 19.
Students will receive an email on August 1 allowing them to select times to arrive on August 19 between 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
If students are part of an athletic team or program that will arrive to campus earlier than August 19, the coach or program director will communicate that information to students.
