During the week of orientation you will have many activities to help you begin adjusting to your life in Burlington, to make new friends, and to learn about all that UVM has to offer. Below is a sampling of some of the activities you will participate in during orientation - most of these activities are required, but we will also give you free time in the afternoons to explore this town which will become your second home! You will receive the exact schedule when you arrive in the USA.
