Fall orientation is an extensive 5-day program which includes a wide variety of activities. There are a number of events planned specifically for new students as well as events to which the entire campus community is invited to attend.  In order to prepare you for your on-campusarrival in August, we mail a comprehensive packet of information to all new students which we refer to as the New Student Orientation Packet.

The New Student Orientation Packet, which is posted the third week of May, contains very important information on topics including registration and class selection, arrival information, a Scrambles (optional wilderness orientation programs) registration form and much more.
