New Student Orientation will take place from August 26-August 29, 2021. Students will be assigned to a peer Orientation Leader based on their major and First Year Seminar class. The New Student Orientation program aims to help new students get connected with each other and to the University through small group discussions, fun social events, and memorable educational sessions. Some meetings will take place virtually through Blue Jeans, and some sessions will be in small groups in person. Safety is still our priority as we plan New Student Orientation this year. One to two weeks prior to New Student Orientation, each new student will receive an e-mail indicating who their Orientation Leader is with additional information about the weekend. If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are so excited to welcome you to the Mustang family!
August 23-25, 2021
The goal of Pre-Orientation is to help students become familiar with campus and meet new friends before classes and Orientation begin. Pre-Orientation programs help students bond over a common interest and have fun. Students who live on campus will have the opportunity to move in early. Students who are athletes, in marching band, Scholars Pre-Orientation, or any other programs that have activities August 23-25 will not be able to participate.
Diversity & Inclusion Pre-O Program (DIPP)
Come DIPP your toe in the water before the semester starts! Participating in our pre-orientation program is a great way to make like-minded friends before orientation and the semester even get started. We will explore topics of diversity and inclusion through cultural dining experiences, a closer look at Baltimore through a social justice lens, and a community service activity. All this while making new friends, getting acquainted with campus, and meeting upperclassmen and staff that can enhance your transition to college.
Fashion & Design
Baltimore has served as home to companies like Under Armour, South Moon Under, Christopher Shaefer Clothing, Treason Toting Company, and more. Over two days, students will visit fashion retailers, meet store managers, and tour stores in distinct shopping areas. Students will be introduced to Baltimore neighborhoods and provided with resources for retail offerings.
The incoming class of 2025 is invited to participate in our Freshmen Adventures program. This will allow new students to meet peers, get acquainted with campus, have some fun and make memories before New Student Orientation begins. Space is limited and sign up is first-come, first serve.
Sophomore & Transfer Adventures
This program will help sophomore and transfer students get connected to each other and to the University through off-campus trips and on-campus activities. Participants will have the opportunity to meet more peers, learn about the campus experience, and have fun before classes begin. Space is limited and sign up is first-come, first serve.
Sign up and cost information will be available beginning June 14, 2021. Please e-mail email@example.com with any questions.
All incoming first year students, including transfer and commuter students, are automatically enrolled in New Student Orientation. This program is FREE to all students.
