While full information about your February 2020 orientation will be posted in the fall, newly admitted students often find the previous year’s information a helpful reference. We've therefore left much of the 2019 content accessible in these pages.

Please read the descriptions of the February Pre-Arrival Checklist to become familiar with your due dates. There are many things you have to do before you get here.  Beginning in May 2019, you'll be able to access a helpful checklist. 

February Orientation Trips

We offer optional orientation trips in February for new students.  There are outdoor orientation trips and community engagement trips.  Registration for the trips will start in late November.


You will receive several mailings and emails from the College over the course of the next few months. We will post all of those documents here for easy reference.
