2018 Orientation Schedule

Students: Please note that participation in Orientation is required for all first time students.  Attendance at all events is mandatory so please make plans accordingly to be available.  

Parents: We invite all parents and family members to join us for our Kick Off as well as an Orientation session just for parents on Sunday starting at 3:00 PM and to stay for our Church & Community Picnic on the grounds!  Please note, however, there are no events scheduled on Monday or Tuesday specifically or exclusively for parents. The events are set-up to assist your child in transitioning to college and meeting their new classmates. Most of these events will be in small group discussions to foster intimate dialogue between the student, their peers, and the faculty and staff leading them.
