Key dates

Your summer experience kicks off with new student orientation and takes you through your first week on campus.

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, and optional but highly recommended for new transfer students. Parents and other supporters are invited to participate in a family orientation program that takes place at the same time.
