Orientation Events Calendar

Easily find all the exciting and informative Orientation & Transition sessions we’ve put together to get you started, and keep you on the right track this term.

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. Make sure to add them to your calendar so you don’t miss a step.

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!

Pick and choose whatever events suit your specific needs. These are completely optional but designed to provide the guidance to get you started.

Please be aware that these events and sessions are being recorded. Be mindful of what you share online, and message the moderators privately if you do not want to share information publicly. For more on privacy and your online presence check out our Tips for Online Etiquette.
