Once a student is accepted for admission, they will need to attend one of the three Bison Bound sessions. At Bison Bound, future students will register for classes, get their IDs, parking passes, and take care of other necessary registration steps. Who knows, they might even meet their future roommate!

A few days before fall classes begin, accepted students will attend Impact -  Harding's new student orientation. Students will move into their dorms, meet other students, and begin their journey at Harding with a weekend of fun!
