Extended Orientation

This program, a combined effort between New Student Orientation, Outdoor Pursuits and Off-Campus Life, offers students the opportunity to develop relationships with other new students, student leaders, and staff or faculty. Service projects and outdoor adventures create an intimate environment that can alter the student experience before the first semester begins!
