Spring Start Orientation

Welcome, new mid-year college adventurers! While most students begin their college journey in the fall, you brave students have chosen the road less traveled, starting your Roanoke experience right in the middle of the year. It's like joining a movie mid-way through - exciting, a little disorienting, but filled with thrilling twists and turns. As you start this chapter, remember you are not alone. The Roanoke community are here to help you. Whether you are trading high school hallways for campus culture or simply taking a different route to pursue your purpose, embrace the uniqueness of your mid-year start. It's your story, and it's bound to be epic!
