Open house is for all students admitted into Salem Witch's Institute. The purpose is for students to meet new professors and greet classmates, as well as finding items they are missing. Second years are to find their sorority/fraternity. This event usually takes place on the second Friday of August.
Salem starts usually the fourth or fifth monday of August, eariler than their other wizarding school counterparts, for the sake of more education. The end of the year is usually on the fourth or fifth Thursday of May.
First years are to be in a single house. However, during the open house before your second year, you can choose a sorority/fraternity in which you want to be in. If the members of the group does not accept you, you may move on. If you can not get along with the members in your sorority/fraternity, a professor may move you.
