Freshman Orientation will ease your transition to college and spark your excitement about Quinnipiac. You'll quickly get involved by participating in a number of activities like singing karaoke, exploring the campus and getting to know your professors.
Students also have the opportunity to meet with academic deans who will explain Quinnipiac's academic requirements. Students meet with faculty advisers to discuss possible courses for the first semester and learn about the variety of campus resources through staff and upperclass students.
When you arrive, you'll be put into a group of about 12 incoming students. Each group is led by two upperclassmen, and every year the Orientation leaders pick a theme and a logo for the sessions. For example, one year the theme was "How Sweet it Is," and the corresponding logo was jellybeans. Each group chooses an individual name that goes with the logo-a specific jellybean flavor in this instance. So each group has its own identity (e.g., the Wild Cherry group), and it's something you'll hold onto and remember long after you graduate.
Orientation sessions for Fall 2013 will be held June 10-11, 13-14, 17-18, 20-21 and Aug. 21-22.
