New Student Orientation 

August 17-18, 2020

Students should plan on checking in for New Student Orientation between 1 - 4 p.m. Aug 12-16, ideally on the same day they arrive to campus to move-in to their residence hall.  Non-residential students are able to check in any day during the arrival period.

At check-in students will be assigned to either the Maroon or Gray group.  Both groups will attend the same information sessions and activities, but at different times in order to accommodate appropriate safety precautions.
