Welcome to DOG DAYS!

DOG DAYS: New Student Orientation is a program designed to help new students transition into the University. Whether you are coming in as a transfer student from another college/university or a first-time freshman from high school, we are here to help you.

During orientation students will meet with an academic counselor, a major advisor, and register for classes. In addition to learning about academic requirements, students will hear from a variety of campus programs as well as participate in a resource fair.

Orientation for students entering in the Fall 2015 semester will take place in June and July. Students can begin registering for summer orientation on Sunday, March 15, 2015.
