Husson University’s New Student Orientation days are summer orientation events designed to provide new, enrolled students and their parents with the information they need to successfully transition to higher education. Orientations are coordinated through the Office of Academic Success and Intercultural Services (OASIS) and feature separate strands of programming for students and those who accompany them. University offices are also open on these days to assist students and their parents with any individual needs.
During the summer of 2013, 93% of our incoming class of students attended a New Student Orientation day. Comments ranged from “I met a student in my major and we’ve decided to be roommates!” to “I feel like I’m a Husson student now!” Students and parents agree that attending New Student Orientation was a positive step along the journey to a higher education degree.
Each New Student Orientation is tailored to one of Husson University’s four Schools or Colleges. As faculty and advisors from the sponsoring school will be in attendance on that day, students should plan to attend on their school-specific New Student Orientation.
Attending the make-up New Student Orientation day in July is another option. General faculty and advisors will be available, you will still get to meet current Husson students, and getting your schedule and student ID will put you that much further ahead on the path to success. Our bookstore will be open that Saturday for textbooks and other Husson gear, and University offices will have hours of operation for any specific needs. Parent sessions will also be offered that day.
