Fall Orientation Schedule

Fall Orientation for 2023 will be held Thursday, August 17-Sunday August 20th. 

  • New resident students should check their move-in assignment from Residence Life.
  • Commuter students will check in on 8/17 between 2-3pm at the Grumbacher Center.
  • The first Orientation session for all new students will begin at 3:15pm in Grumbacher.
  • Families are welcome to join students until the conclusion of the Parting Reception at approximately 5pm.

No registration is required for Fall Orientation. Because there are no fees for attending the orientation program, we automatically enroll all incoming students and will have a schedule prepared for you upon check-in.

*Fall Orientation is required for all new students. This time will serve to prepare students for the social and academic transitions into campus life.

Adult Learners (Students who are over 23 and do not live on campus) are welcome to attend our modified Adult Learner Program in lieu of the full orientation program.

New Students will also be able to access the Orientation schedule in the YCP App.
