Spring Orientation/Welcome Week
Our Spring Orientation provides incoming students with a unique experience—one where you can explore and become part of a supportive community of practice and take part in a higher degree of opportunity, understanding, friendship, practice, and success.

During the week, you will also . . .

Attend informational meetings about meal plans, student employment, billing, financial aid, internships/career guidance, and much more
Meet professors and learn more about our academic programs

Welcome Week orientation is required for all new students. If you have a conflict that prevents you from attending the entire orientation, either in-person or remotely, or any questions regarding orientation and housing please contact our Residence Director, Mark Hagenlocher at 618.374.5561.
