New Student Orientation
The New Student Orientation Program is an extensive five-day program that focuses on scholarship, tradition and community. Through meetings with academic advisers, participation in traditional ceremonies and events, and engaging in community building activities, new students will learn the values of scholarship and community living and have the opportunity to connect with hundreds of their classmates.
Students are invited to attend one or more of our pre-orientation opportunities, programs designed to help acclimate students and introduce them to fellow classmates, upperclass students and University administrators before orientation begins.
