For RRO we want you to have the chance to get to know new people. One way to do that is to stay with someone new during RRO. You will be staying on the same floor with all of the other same gender students who are in your small group so you can get to know them a little better than their name!! (But to spell it out, no you cannot request a specific roommate during RRO.)
Plan to bring comfortable clothing and walking shoes. RRO will provide you with a t-shirt for each day of RRO. We will be going to the Student Rec Center on Day 1. We will have an Ice Cream Social on Day 2. Some of the indoor events may be a bit cold, so pack a light sweater or jacket.
Tuition and fees will not be required to be paid at RRO. Students will later receive an electronic bill, and can then pay their balance. For more information on billing and payment, please go to the Student Business Services website: www.sbs.ttu.edu, or call (806) 742-3272.
3-Day: You will register for classes on Day 3. Advisors will meet with you to assist in selecting courses based on your academic major. Because classes fill, it is good to have back-up classes selected.
1-Day: Registration will occur in the afternoon portion of RRO. Students will meet with academic advisors during RRO to determine what classes to register for. Advisors will also instruct the students on how to use the online registration system.
