Virtual orientation events for students and families

Orientation events for students and families will be offered virtually this spring and summer.

These sessions will include information on:

• The liberal arts 

• Housing and dining 

• Financial aid and billing 

• Diversity, equity and inclusion 

• Student success 

• Safety and well-being 

Sessions will equip students and parents with the information they need to be prepared for the fall. Parents and students will sign up for separate events tailored to them (see schedules below).

Students: The events below are separate from your virtual advisor meeting to discuss your fall class schedule, and the live registration event. You should plan to participate in all three.

Parent and family sessions 

Two different orientation sessions are offered for parents and families on rotating days of the week. The sessions are repeated in April, May, June and July. Register for the dates most convenient for you.

The following presentations will be offered live via Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. You'll hear from staff in each of these offices and have a chance to ask questions.
