First-Year Student Orientation

The University offers two programs for first-year students starting in the fall or summer terms: Overnight and Single Day. Both programs contain group time to meet with academic advisors/representatives concerning course schedules, spend time with other students, attend a variety of workshops and meet with Orientation Guides. Parents may attend specialized sessions during either the Single or Overnight Program. Learn more about your new student options below. 

For students starting in the spring semester, we have one program. The single-day program contains workshops and information related to a successful start at the University.
