Main Event


PICK YOUR DAY — August 14 or 16, 2020 
Please login below and complete the form to choose the day and time to arrive for the Main Event, your easy-access gateway to Southern’s campus! Due to pandemic precautions and limits on gathering size, this event is by appointment only. If you do not sign up by June 30, we will assign a day and time to you via an email message.    

The Main Event is required for all new and transfer students who will be on campus for the Fall 2020 semester, including those who live in the local and surrounding areas.   

As your first stop, you will need to sign in at Iles P.E. Center, complete any remaining Enrollment Checklist items, and receive clearance to be on campus.  

Students completing all required Enrollment Checklist items in advance will be eligible for prize drawings. After choosing your date and time below, you will receive a confirmation email along with instructions for checking to see what Enrollment Checklist items are still outstanding for you.  

No more than two people can accompany you to the Main Event. All participants will go through a quick health screening and must wear a face covering. New Student Orientation will take place the following week, Monday through Thursday, August 17-20, and you will receive an orientation schedule when you check in for the Main Event. Classes begin on Monday, August 24.  

If you have any questions, call 423.236.3100 or email fye@southern.edu. We can’t wait to see you at Southern. It’s going to be an amazing semester!
