Fall 2022 Undergraduate Orientation

First-Year Orientation
As a first-year student, you will participate in a week-long program as a member of a team of 15-25 students who share your area of study.  In 2022, the first year orientation program will begin just after noon on Sunday, August 21 and run until the afternoon of Friday, August 26.  Classes start the following Monday, August 29.

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!

If you are a transfer student, please consider enrolling in the First-Year Orientation Program as the best possible way to start next year.
