Orientation Schedule 2014

This schedule is tentative and subject to change as Orientation is planned; it is up for your viewing so that you may plan your coming to campus. Once students and families arrive in August, a finalized itinerary will be picked up at Orientation Station. The final itinerary includes a fully-detailed schedule of events and information about the busy weekend.

This year's orientation is scheduled to occur over Labor Day Weekend. Therefore, the University will be observing Labor Day on Friday, September 26th.

Friday, August 29th

Please note: Friday is your day to move in to your room, get situated with your new surroundings, and spend time with your family. After Friday, there is limited time to do these things so take advantage while you can!
