Monthly To-Do Lists

The summer before your first quarter in the College will go by more quickly than you can imagine. As you prepare to begin your new academic career with us, there is important information for you to review and several very important tasks to complete. To ensure that you don't miss anything, we have developed a series of monthly To-Do Lists for you to follow throughout the summer. Some items may be able to be completed ahead of time. Others items will have specific windows of time during which you much complete the assigned task. We recommend that you read each month's items carefully to make sure that you don't miss anything.

On each list, you will find three categories of tasks.

  • Mandatory: These tasks must be completed by the deadline listed in order for you to be prepared for Orientation and the start of classes.
  • Strongly Recommended: These items will complement the required tasks and will help to ease your transition into the College.
  • Encouraged: These items will assist in ensuring that you have the best possible start to your time in the College.

If you run into problems or have questions along the way, the College Programming Office is here to help. You can contact us via email at college-programming@uchicago.edu or by phone at 773-702-8616. We also recomend that you join the Class of 2021 Facebook Group to see what other students in your class are talking about.
