Let's Talk Orientation

You have questions, we have answers! Check out our new interactive series, Let's Talk Orientation, on Wednesdays at noon, live on Webex. Each week will feature a member of our campus community who will discuss their department's role and how they help incoming students. The session will then turn into an open forum to answer questions and help you find the resources you and your family need to succeed. Mark your calendars and bring your questions!
