Summer 2014 Orientation

Honors College students are required to attend a special pre-orientation session that his held the evening before each Orientation session. (See dates below.) At this pre-orientation session, we will discuss specifics of the Honors College curriculum and the course registration process. This session also provides the opportunity to become acquainted with other Honors College students and to view the two room types in University Heights North (UHN) that are available to incoming first years: suite double and private double.

After attending the Honors College pre-Orientation, students follow the two-day Orientation schedule for their home academic unit: a series of informational meetings and programs, advising sessions and events that prepare them for the start of classes on August 25th. Honors College staff are available to assist with any questions about the Honors College that may arise during Orientation.
