Nobody likes moving, let's be honest! To help ensure your seamless move in to Copper Beech, we've made a list of easy tips to make your move in process as smooth as can be.
First Month's Rent
Remember that at move in you will be required to submit your first month's rent payment. This can be done using a certified check or a money order! Unfortunately, we do not accept cash.
Pack an Essentials Box
Pack this box with everything you need to get you through your first 24 hours in your new home. This includes clothes, toiletries, snacks, sheets for the bed, shower curtain, and the coffee maker, so you can take your time unpacking the rest.
The less you have, the fewer boxes you need to move. Now is the time to sell, or just get rid of anything you don't need. Keep in mind that if you donate, you can use the receipt to claim a tax deduction.
Label Your Boxes
Use color-coded stickers to label each box according to room, so you know exactly where they all belong or use label tape to clearly state what goes where in your new home!

Graduation is a tradition in itself, but smaller traditions take place leading up to graduation. The traditions at Radford University start with graduation meetings for clubs, honors society and end with the Spring Commencement Ceremony.
Nursing school pinning is the most looked forward to tradition in your nursing school career. Pins are most often presented by a graduates’ loved one or a faculty member of the nursing school. The pinning of the nurses is a symbolic welcoming to the new nurses.
Latin Honors Society has a tradition for graduates as well; the graduates are presented with awards for a GPA starting at 3.5 all the way to 4.0. There are three different stages of awards, starting with Summa Cum Laude “with the highest honor”, Magna Cum Laude “with great honor”, and finally Cum Laude “with honor”.
After all the other festivities the ultimate tradition happens, graduation. Students have worked four years or more for this moment. Graduates at Radford University walk in on Moffett Lawn behind bagpipe players. The commencement speaker is one of the most memorable moments besides the graduates walking across the stage. The commencement speaker provides motivation to graduates by elaborating on their experience after graduation. Students are then called by major to receive their diplomas.
