To begin the orientation process, please find the term in which you will begin classes:


Fall 2020:

Due to the current guidelines/restrictions surrounding social distancing and hosting large events, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person orientation events. Instead, we have a virtual SOAR event for you to attend safely at home.

All freshmen students beginning class in Fall 2020 will be required to complete this virtual SOAR followed by Hatch Camp, our extended orientation program. 

Use the link below to register for our virtual SOAR. Once you submit the form, you receive the link to complete virtual SOAR.

  • Move-In Day - August 20
  • Hatch Camp - August 21-22
  • Convocation - August 23
  • First Day of Classes - August 24
