Experience LaUNCh!

LaUNCh offers you the opportunity to develop relationships with other new students, student leaders, and staff or faculty. Service projects and immersive activities create an intimate environment that can positively impact your student experience before the first semester begins!

LaUNCh is developed and coordinated by New Student Orientation, Outdoor Pursuits, and Off-Campus Life.

LaUNCh is open to all Summer and Fall 2017 incoming (new and transfer) students who will have completed their Orientation requirements prior to the experience. If the last day of your orientation session ends on the same day a LaUNCh begins, this is acceptable.

Note: Completion of Orientation requirements will be verified. This program is not available to students who plan to attend an Orientation session in August.


There are limited spaces for each LaUNCh! Reservations will be made in the orientation reservation system.
