New Student Programs

Summer Preview Program/Registration

The Summer Preview Program has been organized to give new students an opportunity during the summer to consult with administrators, faculty advisors, and student leaders about curricular regulations, course details, registration procedures, or any other questions the student might have. Students will meet with faculty advisors and register for their fall classes. Several dates are specified during the summer, and students are invited to visit the campus at one of those times. Students register during the summer for the fall semester after consultation with a faculty advisor.

Welcome Week

All new students are required to be on the campus a few days before classes begin to participate in “Welcome Week’’ activities in August. New students move into their housing, consult with their advisors, learn about the University and its many services and opportunities, and become acquainted with the school, the faculty members, and the other members of their class. Approximately 120 upper-class students serve as leaders during Welcome Week and work with small groups of new students offering individual attention and special help.
