Move-In Day

Move-In Day Fall 2023

Fall 2023 Move-In Day is Tuesday, August 22, 2022. Move-In Day is designed to get you check-in and moved in quickly and efficiently so that you can start enjoying your new life at MSU Texas. We have amazing volunteers from various student organizations and athletic teams who come out to not only welcome you to campus but to help you move into your new room. Evening activities and a wide variety of social opportunities allow you to get out of your room and meet your hallmates, Peer Educators (PEs), Resident Assistants (RAs), and the community at the heart of Midwestern State University.

Welcome Home Mustangs

You are now a part of the Mustangs family! While Mustangs Roundup will teach you what it means to be a Mustang, Welcome Home events are a time to make your Residence Hall feel like more than just a room. Setting up your room will make the space feel like a home, but meeting your fellow Mustangs will make MSU Texas feel like family!

Learn more about Welcome Home events and activities:

The fun begins on Tuesday Night.  All students are invited to the annual Welcome Home Ice Cream Social in the Legacy Courtyard. This is a great opportunity to connect with old friends and for new students to begin meeting their hallmates and classmates.
