New Student Orientation

Your college experience is about to begin! Fall Orientation takes place Thursday, August 23rd - Sunday, August 26th. This program is your first opportunity to become a part of the campus community, meet fellow students, create friendships and make lifelong connections. You'll want to arrive Wednesday, August 22nd to take care of business and check in to Housing (if you're living on campus). Expect an amazing experience during the social and educational activities we have planned for you.

Abbreviated Orientation for Summer A and B will take place at the following times. All Summer Orientation attendees are encouraged to also attend events at Fall Orientation in August. 

Summer A Orientation - Monday, May 14th 3-4 PM, Student Union Lower Hangar

Summer B Orientation - Monday, July 2nd 3-4 PM, Student Union Lower Hangar 

Student Orientation Leaders

A team of current student leaders is here to guide you through orientation. Orientation leaders are caring and trained mentors that want to share their experience with you. New students will be placed together in groups led by an orientation leader. In their session, students can meet new people, get questions answered, and have fun. Veterans will have their own group led by a member of the Student Veterans’ Organization with specific information tailored to their needs.

Parent Information

Parents and spouses are invited and encouraged to attend orientation with their student. A special session, led by our Dean of Students, will also address specific concerns that parents have. Parents are also encouraged to join the Prescott Parents' & Family Association for ongoing communication. There is no cost to join. Members receive periodic emails about campus happenings and news, a discount at the campus bookstore, invitations to regional meetings, and opportunities to be involved with the Parents' & Family Association. For questions, contact Sally Jackson in the Dean of Students Office.

Orientation Guide

A guidebook outlining all the information you need in order to prepare for the semester, including registration instructions, is mailed to all students who have submitted their tuition deposit in May. An electronic version is also posted on this page under “Related Resources.”
