New Student Orientation
Congratulations! You've made it to New Student Orientation!
Beginning this summer, incoming new students for Fall 2022 will be assigned an Orientation leader to assist them with any questions or concerns you may have as you prepare for college.
Once you arrive on campus in August, you'll have the opportunity to meet your peers, make friends, get familiar with campus resources, explore DC, and more!
