Information Session

What is Husson University's New Student Orientation all about?

Husson University's New Student Orientations are events designed to provide newly enrolled students with the information they need to successfully transition into their higher education experience. Orientations are coordinated through Husson's Center for Student Success (OASIS). University offices are open on these days to assist students with any individual needs.

Why should I attend a Husson University New Student Orientation?

Students report that attending orientation alleviates concerns and provides an opportunity to take care of any "loose ends" before the semester begins. Orientation is the first step along the journey to a higher education degree.

I am an international student, what is my schedule like?

International students have an extended orientation schedule.  In addition to the offerings on January 16th, all international students attend orientation events tailored specifically to them on January 12th and January 13th. For any questions, international students should contact Taryn Carson at carsont@husson.edu, or 207.941.7621

What if I am unable to attend?
