New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation will ease your transition to college and spark your excitement about Quinnipiac. You'll quickly get involved by participating in a number of activities like learning the Quinnipiac Fight Song, signing the Book of the Legend, and getting to know faculty and staff members.
Students will meet with faculty who will explain Quinnipiac's academic requirements, discuss courses options and assist with the class registration process. Students will also learn about the variety of campus resources and engagement opportunities from staff and upper-class students.
When you arrive, you'll be place into a group of approximately 12 new students. Each group is led by two upperclassmen, Orientation Leaders or OLs. Every year the Orientation staff picks a theme for the sessions. For example, in 2013 the theme was "Around the World." Each small group is then given a name that corresponds with the theme - a specific country in this instance. Each group is then able to create its own identity (e.g., Jamaica), and it's something you'll hold onto and remember long after you graduate.
