The New Student Orientation program helps ease the transition to college for incoming students and their parents and supporters. Students get to know campus, meet classmates and prepare for a great first year at the University. Orientation is required for all first-year students. Parents and other supporters are invited to participate in a family orientation program that takes place at the same time.

Orientation sessions are offered twice per year:

  • Summer Orientation for students starting school in the fall semester
  • January Orientation for students starting school in the spring semester
