New Student Orientation

The primary purpose of Student Life is to foster the general well-being of students. We are involved in a wide range of student concerns, including health insurance, student governance, student activities and physical fitness. The efforts of our office are devoted to helping students adjust to the professional school environment.


The New Student Orientation planned in collaboration with the Office of Admissions & Recruitment and the Office of the Registrar facilitates the transition of new students into the college and initiates the integration of new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of the institution.


In addition to the orientation offered by Student Services, each school plans orientation activities for new students. For more details for new students, visit the Office of Admissions & Recruitment Admitted Students page (the link is sent by email to only admitted students).
