New Student Orientation


Get a taste for campus life and start planning your academic future during this fun and informative program -- and encourage your parents to come along for the separate Parent Orientation!

During your two-day program you'll navigate campus with a group of 20 students, getting a real feel for Southern as you plan your first-year course schedule with faculty and staff advisers, register for classes, and learn about the academic expectations of university professors. You'll also find out which learning community is right for you and have the chance to talk in depth with your advisers. You'll have fun, too, as you get to know fellow first-year students and take your first steps -- together -- into your Southern experience.
