We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and shoes. We keep sessions at a refreshing temperature so a light jacket is recommended.
We strongly recommend that guests be active stakeholders in a student’s success. Please be aware that guests and students will not be together for the full programincluding class registration. We kindly ask that students keep guests to two or fewer as capacity is limited.
We ask students to register no later than a week in advance to ensure we are prepared to help you as efficiently as possible. There are a limited number of spaces for registration and we seek to keep these sessions as personalized as possible.
Walk-in registration is limited. Room in the registration rooms cannot be guaranteed.
There will be classes available at every Orientation, even if you attend the last session. However, the earlier sessions will have a wider selection of courses from which to choose.

You may choose the Orientation session that best fits your schedule. The first session is reserved for Merit Scholarship recipients. We strongly encourage you to reserve a session as soon as possible.
