New Student Orientation

Freshman and Transfer students entering Fall 2019

 

 

Summer Orientation is a structured day-long program that offers new students and transfer students the opportunity to establish a link with faculty in their intended major, become familiar with the campus and the array of academic and campus life programs available and "take care of business" to prepare for move-in. The day begins at 8:00 a.m. with Check-In and a continental breakfast and ends at 3:00 p.m.
