What to expect at Orientation
The following information refers to our summer orientation program. For information regarding November and January sessions, please read our description for Transfer & Non-Traditional Student Orientation.
This two-day program for incoming freshmen immerses students in the academic and social life of UNC. Students will attend sessions and activities in small groups led by an upperclassman Orientation Leader. At the end of the
second day, students will register for their Fall semester classes in a group setting.
During this Orientation, students will stay the night in Wiebking Hall and share a room with a student of the same gender.
- experience living in a residence hall and eating in a dining hall
- interact with others who are also beginning their college career
- be guided throughout Orientation by an upper-class student known as an Orientation Leader (OL). The OL will help new students identify campus resources as well as answer questions and provide advice about campus life. The OL team has been thoroughly trained in academic advising and will assist students in learning the academic policies and requirements of the university and the student's major program.
- have a photo taken for the UNC card
- set up an optional Wells Fargo student account
- register for classes with a professional or faculty advisor in a group setting (note that the advisor you meet with may not be the one assigned to you in the fall)
