WHAT TO BRING TO NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION?

The Orientation staff has put together a list of things that you should bring when you pack for your Orientation session. Remember to think casual and comfortable when you are packing. You want to be comfortable during the sessions and evening activities. Only bring with you what you will need for two days and one night (you aren’t going on a week-long vacation!). Do not bring any valuable possessions with you, because the Orientation Program is not responsible for items that are lost, stolen, or damaged.
