Summer 2012 Orientation

Honors College students are required to attend a special pre-orientation session that is held the evening before each Orientation session. (See dates below.) This pre-orientation session will provide an opportunity for HC students and families to meet one another and get acquainted. We will also discuss the specifics of the HC curriculum and the course registration process.

After attending the Honors College pre-orientation, students will participate in the two-day Orientation program, which is filled with informational meetings, advising sessions and events that prepare them to start classes in August. On Day One of Orientation students will follow the schedule for their home academic unit. On Day Two, students will again follow the schedule for their home academic unit, and HC staff will be available at course registration to assist with any questions that might arise at that time.

The schedule for the Honors College pre–Orientation session is as follows:

  • 3:30–3:50 pm check in at Harris/Millis
  • 3:50 meet with HC administration and staff in University Heights North (includes a tour of room types available to incoming students)
  • 5:30–6:30 pm STUDENTS: Pizza with the Dean
  • 5:30–6:00 pm PARENTS/FAMILIES: Parent info sessions and Q&A *
  • 6:30–7:30 pm Orientation activity with Honors College Orientation Assistant

*Note that parents are free to make their own dinner and evening plans after the parent session, 5:30–6:00 pm.
