Before you arrive for the start of classes, it’s a good idea to make a checklist of any remaining tasks to complete and supplies to obtain. By coming prepared on day one, you’ll give yourself the best opportunity to succeed in your freshman year and beyond.
The resources below will help organize your preparation for the academic year, and Student Life and Advising is available to answer any other questions you have. Contact us by sending a message to studentlife.sg[at]digipen[dot]edu.
