The objective of the college orientation has changed since its humble beginnings as a preview for students of college life. Now, orientations are an opportunity for universities to share their principles with students and promote respect and inclusivity.

In the upcoming Virtual Forum, experts from several colleges will gather to discuss what has been successful, and what hasn’t been, as their orientation plans continue to evolve.

Join The Student-Success Journey: Amping Up Orientation on April 17th at 2 p.m. ET to learn more about cultivating unity within the first few days on campus.
