On August 24, 2018, Orientation Step 2 will be an important component in the transition to becoming a Shepherd RAM! Knowing what resources are available to you and how to access them will be critical to your success. At Shepherd your participation in Orientation Step 2: New Student Welcome and Convocation is essential to learning about these resources. Orientation Step 2 has different components than Step 1 and will assist ALL students new to Shepherd in making a smooth transition to the community.
