Registration Open for Fresh Fest Early Move-In


Contributed by Austin Reid

Remember to register for Fresh Fest before August 5th! This early move-in program sponsored by Hillel in partnership with Ithaca College First Year Experience provides new students the opportunity to settle in two days early, make friends in a smaller group setting, and get situated before the crowds arrive. 

Go for a hike to Buttermilk Falls. Explore the Commons. Roast s'mores round a campfire and make friends for a lifetime. Hillel's early move-in program FreshFest is a pre-semester program offered to incoming first-year and transfer students, giving them the opportunity to make early connections on campus and beyond. 

August 18–20, 2019, new students will settle in and have fun with other Jewish students in a warm, fun, relaxed environment.  Meet Hillel staff and student leaders, play Jewish geography, and find a comfortable community before school even starts.
