Office of the Dean
1 Raven’s Loop
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 Freshman 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. Please do not forget to fill out your dorm application and submit your deposit. This can be done on the school website or at the student admission and housing office on campus.
Next, I would like to remind you that Freshman orientation, which we call the Sweat Lodge, coincides with dorm check-in on the third weekend in August. Please plan to attend this event, which takes place on Friday night of that week. At Sweat Lodge you’ll learn about the importance of campus safety, our university traditions and fight song, the Raven’s Honor Code, and gain valuable advice from some of our current Senior students. The Friday night event will then end with free pizza and a show by our 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
