Orientation session dates

Register early

Orientation sessions have a limited capacity so we can provide personalized and beneficial experiences for all participants.

Orientation sessions tend to fill up quickly; we strongly recommend that you register for Orientation early so you can attend the session and on the date you prefer.

Overnight stay

To complete the Orientation experience, students are required to stay overnight on campus in the Valley 1 Residence Halls.  Please check the schedule below to ensure that you go to the correct Residence Hall for the session that you are attending.
