Freshman Student Overnight Options

Orientation is a two-day program and students must attend both days.

There are two overnight options from which students can choose - overnight in a campus residence hall or arranging their own overnight place to stay. Both options include meals in a campus dining commons. Most students choose to stay overnight in the on-campus residence hall.
