Orientation is required for all new students, including incoming transfer and remote students, and runs Thursday, September 3 through Monday, September 7. All programs will be hosted virtually on JumboLife, where you'll be able to track your progress with mandatory and other programs (more inforrmation to come soon!).
A full calendar of events can be found on the Orientation website. Some programs are mandatory and synchronous, and are indicated below with the specific times. Others are asynchronous and be may be accessed any time during Orientation and are marked as an “all day” event with no specific start or end time.
