edited August 2011 in College Admissions
Can we start a list of when colleges start? Specifically, when freshman head to school for orientation? I'll start with what I know:

Cornell- August 21st

(Add to the list, so the next post will say Cornell and another school, etc etc)

    Is it true to say most colleges that use the quarter system have a fall quarter from late September to mid-December, a winter quarter from early January to mid-March, a spring quarter from late March or early April to mid-June, and an optional summer session?

    and

    Most universities on the semester system have a fall semester from late August to mid-December, a spring/winter semester from early or mid-January to early or mid-May, and an optional summer session?
