Orientation Skit Preview Set for June 25

The campus community is invited to preview Orientation skits at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25 in Corey Union Function Room.

Each year during Orientation the Orientation Assistants (OAs) write and perform a group of scenarios for the first-year students and their guests. These scenarios are about college life and issues students may face when they arrive on campus. 

During Orientation, which begins on Tuesday, July 2 for first-year students, the OAs meet with the new students following the skits in order to further process this information, including providing information about resources on campus.
After the preview attendees can help the OAs prepare by asking them questions that anticipate what new students and family members may ask during the Orientation program. 

Following are the Orientation program dates for June/July and August. All first-year orientation programs are two days with advisement and registration occurring on the second day of the program and all Transfer Orientation and Advisement programs are one day:
