Fall 2013 Freshman Orientation
Freshman fall orientation sessions are two-day programs with a required overnight component. All new day freshmen must attend an orientation session before starting classes. Students are able to choose the session they would like to attend by signing up via Navigator. Sign up will begin on Friday, March 1 2013. Confirmations will be sent approximately one week prior to the session you choose.
Orientation sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you sign up, the greater your chance of getting your top choice!
Freshman Orientation Dates (check-in begins promptly at 8 am):
June 10-11* August 20-21**
June 12-13 * August 26-27
*Honors Students are encouraged to sign up for either June 10-11 or June 12-13

Pre-college transition (Summer Bridge Academy) students are encourage to sign up for a June session
All students will have a freshman orientation fee charged directly to their student account.
At orientation all incoming freshman take a series of diagnostic tests. The results of these tests will not affect your acceptance, but will assist in placing you in the appropriate courses and providing the proper guidance to enable you to develop your full academic potential.

What to Bring
For the overnight portion, please bring an alarm clock, pillow, sheets, blankets, towels, personal toiletries, any medications, etc. Each student will be assigned a room in a campus residence hall on the evening of each orientation session. Resident and commuter students are expected to stay on campus during orientation so they can enjoy the social activities planned for the evenings. All new students are expected to move out of the residence halls following their orientation program. Please contact enrollment management to request arrangements for an early arrival or late departure.
Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided during orientation.
Since it may not be practical for students traveling from a distance to attend an early orientation program, it is recommended that these students attend one of the later orientations scheduled in August.
To request special accommodations, please contact disability services at 978.542.6217 or TTY 978.542.7146.
