EAGLEWeek 2014

At Husson University, we are all about success. Your success. As part of our continued commitment to ensure our students begin their college careers well prepared, the Office of Academic Success and Intercultural Services—OASIS—is pleased to offer EAGLEWeek 2014—a pre-semester program for select students that provides extended orientation services to enhance academic readiness and preparation for university life.

• Phase I begins August 24th with our international student orientation program which is designed for new international students and provides the opportunity to acclimate to both the U.S. and to Husson University before the start of the semester.  All international students attend EAGLEWeek.

• Phase II begins on August 27th
when students who are undecided about a major but who are interested in careers in the health and sciences professions are invited to join their international peers for a three-day program filled with workshops, team-building activities, introduction to various careers, and recreational and cultural activities.
