Virtual Orientation

While we encourage all students to attend on-campus orientation, we understand that it may not be an option for certain students. It's still important for you to get this information, so we're excited to offer a virtual option this year.  All virtual sessions are live and will be completed at the same time as the on-campus sessions. Please check out the chart below for a list of sessions including dates, times and access links. 

The Virtual Orientation can be accessed through Zoom and WebEx platforms. Please take a moment to set up both accounts so you'll be ready to access the sessions.
