Welcome, and congratulations on your acceptance as an incoming Freshman student at East Texas University. I would like to take this opportunity to direct you to information that will make your transition to ETU as smooth as possible.
First, I would like to remind you that all Freshmen and Sophomores are required to live in on-campus housing. This both ensures your safety and helps you build friendships that
will undoubtedly last a lifetime. Go to FightingRavens.com to fill out your dorm application and submit your deposit.
Next, I would like to remind you that Freshman orientation, which we call Sweat Lodge, coincides with dorm check-in on the third weekend in August. Please plan to attend one of the sessions on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evening. At Sweat Lodge you’ll learn about the importance of campus safety, our university traditions and fight song, the Raven’s Honor Code, and advice from Seniors. The Saturday night Sweat Lodge ends with free pizza and a show by local rockers A Jury of Robots.
Again, let me congratulate you on your first step into a larger world. College is what you make of it, and an acceptance to ETU is a great start!
President James Nelson
