Getting Started


We know that entering college or transferring mid-year can be difficult. There is a lot to learn about your campus in a short amount of time. During the Winter of Welcome, you'll explore campus resources and learn about life as a Falcon, all while meeting some great new people! From checking out textbooks to exploring campus, our orientation staff will help you learn about your new home away from home.

This program is tailored for all students, both transfer and first-year. All new students are expected to attend. For information on this year's Winter of Welcome program, check back to this page soon. 

 

We can't wait to see you there and welcome you to the Falcon Family!
