The New Student Orientation Program is designed to both acquaint students with Providence College and to welcome them to their new community. Providence College's Orientation Program is broken into two parts (both are required for new students):
In June, all first year students are invited to campus for one day during which time they will meet with a faculty advisor and register for courses, attend a Resource Fair which will highlight many of the services available to them, and have a chance to meet some fellow students. The Parent program will also be held during these one day sessions. Please note: International students will come to campus for a similar one-day program in late August.
In late August, students will return to campus for a six day Orientation program. During the six days, they will have an opportunity to reconnect with students in their major, participate in the Common Reading Program, attend seminars and interest sessions, and learn about the vast resources available to them on the campus. There will also be fun social opportunities provided.
