Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes planning materials, assessments, publications, and photographs for undergraduate freshman and transfer student orientations.
Orientation is the University's effort, prior to the beginning of classes, to orient new incoming students to the University of San Diego campus and to build community. It is a way for new students to get acquainted with their peers, student life, life in San Diego, and campus services. As freshmen comprise the largest number of new students arriving each fall, fall freshmen orientation is the largest event. New students are provided with information about living on campus, issues facing college students, academic success, and what campus resources are offered to students. Transfer student orientation is also included in the fall and spring orientation events, as well as orientation information provided to parents and families.
