En Español

This year we will be offering both a Virtual Pre-Orientation (launches June 4th) and an in-person Orientation experience, scheduled for August 26-29.

Virtual Pre-Orientation is now available!


The transition to college is one of the biggest steps you'll take in life. We want to help you get ready for a year full of academic and social growth. The Virtual Pre-Orientation will cover everything you need to know prior to attending the in-person experience in late August and will include the following:

  • Overview of the Peer Advisor role and the first year seminar
  • Helpful information for both residential and commuter students
  • Academic resources, including information on our 4-to-Finish program
  • ...and more!

In-Person Orientation will be held August 26-29

We are excited to be able to welcome you and offer an in-person Orientation experience for this upcoming academic year.

For more information and a tentative schedule, please visit the First Year Students or Transfer Students pages. All schedules are subject to change, due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.
