Orientation Part I (June 14, 15 or 16)
Planning Your Journey
Orientation Part I is designed to introduce both you and your parents to Saint Anselm College. You will have the opportunity to meet classmates and orientation leaders, establish your class schedule for the fall, and receive your email address and campus mailbox. You will attend an advising session led by faculty members in your major (or from undeclared advisors if you did not select a major), and you will receive information from Residential Life, Health Services, Information Technology, Financial Aid, Student Financial Services, Student Activities, the Office of Advisement, the Dean of Students, as well as St. A's students themselves. Representatives at many of the College's offices will be on hand at lunch to answer any specific questions you may have. These sessions are held on the three different days from 8:30 a.m. sharp to about 2 p.m. You may arrive as early as 7:45 a.m. to get your picture ID.
After you have deposited, you will be asked to choose which date you and your parent(s) will attend: June 14, June 15, or June 16. The Office of Admission will send you instructions in mid-May, which you will use to log in to the Enrollment Portal and sign up for one of these sessions by June 3.
Orientation Part II (August 25, 26 & 27)
Beginning Your Journey
Orientation Part II is the "official" beginning of your college journey. This three-day program is designed to help you move into your residence hall, understand the academic expectations of college, involve yourself in the life of the campus community, learn what it means to be an "Anselmian," and get to know your classmates.
Every new student will be placed into an orientation team led by two student orientation leaders. You will make early connections with your classmates and student leaders that will allow for candid and honest discussions about a variety of topics that will help you acclimate to the college. These three fun-filled days will be structured with numerous opportunities to both learn important information and spend quality time with your new classmates.
A schedule for Orientation Part II will be available online in July.
