New Student Experience
First Year, Transfer, Residential & Commuter Students
Acclimating to college life does not happen quickly and we acknowledge this by providing an orientation program that spans from your admissions process through the end of your first year beginning with Summer Orientation, continuing with Welcome Week at the start of your first semester, and extending into your second semester with Welcome Back.
Welcome Week combines a week of fun class-wide activities, along with small group gatherings designed to help students find their place here.
