In 2024, the First Year Orientation program will begin just after noon on Sunday, August 18 and run until the afternoon of Friday, August 23. Classes start the following Monday, August 26.

During First-Year Orientation, you will get a chance to know your classmates, meet your academic advisor and department, explore resources and opportunities on campus, and make decisions about your future. You will also discover ways to stay healthy, excel academically, get involved, become a student leader, and more. Your time at Tech will be incredible and Orientation will help you learn how to make the most of it!
