June New Student Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students. June orientation encompasses a two day, overnight, on campus experience (for both residential and commuter students). Please be sure to register early as sessions are filled on a first come, first serve basis and each session has a limit of attendees.

Additionally, there is a family program that the College strongly recommends family members attend. Two family members/guests per student are permitted to attend, and may also register online at the same link. The family program is a one-day program. Overnight accommodations on campus are not provided for family members/guests.
