New Student Orientation
We believe in happy beginnings.
You know you've come to the right place when you see a group of students in brightly-colored T-shirts jumping up and down, blowing whistles and holding big signs welcoming you to campus for Orientation. Be sure to honk and wave back as you drive into the parking lot. View the Orientation Schedule for Thursday, August 22 - Sunday, August 25th, 2013.
Wonder what orientation is like?
Take a look at clips from Move In Day 2010 and 2011, where first year students bring lots of stuff to campus, and enthusiastic orientation leaders bring it up to their rooms.
Your first stop will be Ross Sports Center where you will pick up your keys and other information (including a dashboard sign for your vehicle). We'll have lots of people to help direct you and move your things. We politely ask you to move your vehicle away from the Quad/First Year Residences once you've unloaded to make room for others trying to move in. Thank you for your patience during this process!
To help you prepare for Orientation and your journey as a St. Mike's student, we've included testimonials from members of our campus community:
