About Orientation

Orientation is a one day event which provides students with all of the information necessary to help make the transition to living at the Mount a seamless and enjoyable experience.

The Orientation Committee hosts informative presentations designed to integrate students into the Mount community. Students have the opportunity to meet with academic advisors, discuss fall courses, meet their classmates and maybe even connect with a future roommate!
