Freshman New Student Orientation

Freshman New Student Orientation takes place over several days leading up to the start of your first semester at Stritch, and includes residence hall move-in (if you are living on-campus); a matriculation ceremony, in which University faculty and leadership will officially welcome you to Stritch; the opportunity to participate in a service experience, and program sessions that will help you navigate your first semester at Stritch. Orientation is mandatory for all incoming freshmen.

At orientation, you'll meet and get to know your fellow new students and upper-class orientation leaders, learn about ways to get involved at Stritch through clubs and service organizations, and participate in social activities designed to get you comfortable with your new surroundings at Stritch and in Milwaukee.

Freshman New Student Orientation is from Thursday, August 21st to Sunday, August 24th, 2014. Move-in Day is Thursday, August 21st.

Transfer Student Orientation

Transfer Student Orientation is a half-day program for all students transferring to Stritch directly from another institution or returning to school after a prolonged absence. Transfer students have unique needs and often come to college while trying to balance their personal, family and work life. For that reason, your orientation needs are different from first-time college students, and your Transfer Student Orientation will reflect that.

Transfer Student Orientation will be held on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to Noon.
