New Student Week

This is the moment you've been waiting for.

First Flight 2018 is scheduled for August 15-19. All traditional, first-year students are expected to attend all events.

Academically, new students will meet with their advisor, attend their first First Year Seminar class, and attend the New Student Convocation. All new students will be placed in small groups and assigned to an upper class mentor. Group assignments will be made based on where you will be living in the fall. Commuter students will be assigned to groups with other commuter students, but will also be connected to a group of students who are living on-campus.

First Flight is a great opportunity for both on campus and commuter students to make friends and familiarize themselves with campus. You will also attend your first class, meet with faculty members in your major area, and engage with the campus community.
