Pre-Orientation

We continue to be committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus, our community and beyond. With this in mind, New Student Orientation are now open and will be conducted virtually (online). The virtual student orientation is an opportunity to connect with your future classmates, prepare for academic and non-academic life, and learn to navigate campus resources prior to the beginning for the semester. These virtual sessions serve as an introduction to the college and will help you navigate your way once classes start.
