Top 5 things to do before orientation
Orientation is around the corner for many new students and we want to make sure everyone is ready. The list below offers some great tips on how new students can prepare for orientation. Don't forget, there's even more detail on your first year orientation prep list or transfer orientation prep list.
1. Complete the Enrollment Confirmation Form
Before you can register for classes, you need to fill out the enrollment confirmation form. Don't worry – it takes less than five minutes. At the end of the form, pay your enrollment deposit and you're set.
2. Get Excited
This is it! You have been working toward this for months, maybe even years, and it's here.
3. Think About Your Classes
When picking classes for your first semester, choose subjects you have confidence in. By picking these types of classes, you can ease yourself in to college life.
Your first semester will be both exciting and challenging. There's no need to tackle the toughest classes first.
4. Dress for the Day
At orientation, you'll be walking around campus, and you'll have your photo taken for your student ID. So this is not the time to break out that new pair of high heels or that old baseball cap, but go ahead and wear that new shirt. Also, make sure to check the weather.
5. Get Ready to Make Friends
Everyone is new, so don't feel shy about introducing yourself to a stranger. You may even find a roommate at orientation.
