Orientation Step 1: First-Year Students

First-year students may choose any of the five Orientation Step 1 sessions. All sessions are identical. While we try to accommodate your first choice of sessions, there is limited amount of space available per session therefore, reservations for each of the sessions are taken in the order in which they are received. The decision of which session to choose should be based on family vacation and work schedules. Parents and family members are invited and encouraged to attend Step 1.
