As part of our continued commitment to ensure our students begin their college careers well prepared, the Center for Student Success is pleased to offer EAGLEWeek 2021— a pre-semester program for select students that provides extended orientation services to enhance academic readiness and preparation for university life.

Register for EAGLEWeek

• Phase I begins Wednesday, August 18th when our international students can move on campus. Over the next couple of days, staff will assist you in arranging bank accounts, cell phone service, and shopping for your residence hall needs. All international students attend EAGLEWeek.

• Phase II begins on August 22nd when students who are undecided about a major are invited to join their international peers for academic workshops, team-building activities, and recreational and cultural activities.

A '"jump start!" You will get a head start on exploring all Husson has to offer! During EAGLEWeek 2021 you will build social connections with your peers while having fun and exploring the Greater Bangor area. Here are just a few advantages of the program:

  • Arriving early for the fall semester and getting settled into your residence hall;
  • Meeting other new Husson students and beginning to make connections;
  • Getting an introduction to campus services that will help you make a confident start at Husson University;
  • Receiving individualized academic advising and coaching from key staff throughout the fall semester;
  • Connecting with an EAGLEWeek Peer Mentor - an upper-level student who is here to help you become the best college student you can be and who will support you as you navigate your first semester of college;
  • Enjoying pre-semester recreational activities on and off-campus;
  • Taking care of necessities such as bank accounts, phone service, textbooks, and other shopping needs before the busy semester begins.

A unique and integral component of EAGLEWeek 2021 is an introduction to academic skills. Beyond learning about what it takes to succeed in college, you will get to investigate why college demands different skills - and you will get to practice these skills in a real college experience. A few more things you will learn:

  • How to think critically
  • How to read for better learning
  • How to take notes for better studying
  • How to structure your schedule to better manage your time and workload

EAGLEWeek 2021 is the right choice for you! By the time the rest of the new students have arrived on campus, you will have explored all campus resources, practiced real college learning, visited some of the local hotspots, found your classrooms for your fall schedule, and made new connections and friendships with your peers. In short, you will have acquired a head start on college life before classes begin on Monday, August 30, 2021. There is no better way to start your college career at Husson!
