First-Year Orientation

New Student Orientation is designed to help ease your transition into college life. During orientation, you will complete many of the steps needed for enrollment such as meeting with an academic advisor, taking your student ID picture, and attending educational workshops. You will also have the chance to meet other new Eagles in small groups hosted by our Orientation Leaders.
