Fall Orientation

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This program is requir​ed for ALL new students (resident and commuter), in addition to the summer Advising & Registration Days program.

During Fall Orientation, students will participate in:

  • ​A Welcome Mass​​ for new students and families (scheduled for 3:00pm on Thursday, Aug. 22 in Peterson Center)
  • Workshops focused on co-curricular life, campus resources, academics, and transition issues
  • Orientation Group discussions led by the Fall Orientation Staff​
  • Residence hall, transfer, and major-specific programming
  • Social activities – both on- and off-campus

Those students living on-campus (a​nd not already participati​​ng in any other pre-Orientation programming) will move into their residence halls the day Fall Orientation begins​. Assign​ed times will be sent by the Office of Residence Life​​ to students along with other move-in information​ in late July. Upon arrival, students should report directly to their residence hall for check-in.​ A full schedule of Orientation events will be provided to students at that time.
