Orientation at Providence College

COVID-19 Update | The COVID-19 pandemic will impact the Orientation program described below. We are currently planning on a hybrid program this fall – primarily online, with some small in-person meetings – beginning shortly after students move onto campus. All new students should expect further information about Fall Orientation by email in August.


Orientation is designed to introduce new students and families to life at Providence College, acquaint them with resources and involvement opportunities, and officially welcome them to the “Friar Family”.

Our summer and fall 2020 programming is broken into three parts – all required of new first-year and transfer students entering PC this fall – including First Days in Friartown events, Online Orientation modules, and Fall Orientation. For more information about each component listed above, as well as parent and family programming, please select from the menu items on the side or bottom of this web page.
