Freshmen Orientation


Spring New Students

The spring orientation program will take place on Friday, January 9 beginning at 1 p.m. Residential students moving on campus in the spring will move in on Friday, January 9 from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. Please be sure to register online for the ROAR Session 7. The spring new student orientation program is for all new students and will provide you with important information about campus resources and time to connect with fellow students. Advising for spring students will take place before the spring ROAR session and students will be contacted by Academic Advising to plan their schedule.

Fall New Students

Incoming freshmen are encouraged to attend a Summer Orientation session on either June 15-16 - Session 1 (Will open in March 2015) or June 22-23 - Session 2 (Will open in March 2015). As part of New Student Orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor and register for fall classes. You will also learn about campus resources, participate in fun activities, and meet upperclassmen who can help answer any questions you may have. Orientation Leaders are upperclassmen who have been selected to assist incoming students during Orientation. These amazing student leaders are willing to answer any questions you may have before, during, or after Orientation.

During Freshmen Orientation in June, on-campus housing will be provided for students. You will be randomly assigned to one of two residence halls for the overnight program. Your parents/guests will need to make off-campus hotel accommodations. All freshmen must register for one of the orientation session options. When you register, you will also have the option of registering your parents to attend the Parent Orientation as well.

Incoming freshmen who have not attended a ROAR Session in June will either attend on August 3-4, 2015 - Session 3 (Will open in June 2015) or August 27-28, 2015 - Session 5. International students, please see the International Orientation information.
