Fall 2020 Orientation Events

Easily find all the exciting and informative Orientation sessions we’ve put together to get you started this Fall.

In this calendar you can see all the events we have planned for you. Events will have the dates and times listed, so you can easily search by date or filter for specific types of events.

Pay close attention because some events may require you to register in advance. However, event listings with a Blackboard link don’t need registration. Simply click on the link within the event listing at the designated time and it will take you right into the session.

Spaces are limited in each session, so make sure you arrive on time to secure your spot!

We’ve also added .ics calendar files to all events. Simply download and add them to your personal calendar to build your own orientation event schedule!
