Events, Times, and Locations may change

The Orientation schedule is designed to assist students and families (on our Opening Day) to begin to understand our community's traditions, expectations, rights and responsibilities.  Each day listed here gives more detail in what one can expect during Orientation; topics included, but not limited to: individual faculty advising meetings, special interest advising by area of study, student code of conduct, Clery requirements, Honor and Integrity. Of course, there are lots of opportunities to begin building your network (RA, floormates, classmates, faculty advisor, etc) as well.
