New Student Orientation


Online New Student Orientation is a one-day experience targeted for new and transfer students enrolling in the Fall 2020 semester. This is an opportunity to connect with your future classmates, prepare for academic and campus life, and learn how to navigate campus prior to your arrival.

These virtual sessions serve as an introduction to the College and can help you answer any questions or concerns you may have about the upcoming academic year. In addition to our virtual session, you will be given access to our ONSO modules. To enhance your virtual experience, we suggest that you complete the ONSO modules before attend your ONSO virtual session.

We value community and have designed a virtual orientation session that provides an opportunity for you to connect with faculty, staff, and your peers.
