May Orientation is a one day program that occurs on Thursday, May 28 and Friday, May 29, 2020. Deposited students will be provided with the opportunity to register for their May Orientation date by February 1, 2020. Orientation check-in will begin at 8:00 AM with the orientation program beginning at 9:00 AM.
It is strongly advised that you make every attempt to attend one of the May Orientation days – it will prepare you for your first year at Ursinus. Meeting with your adviser, hearing about the residential experience, and making friends with other members of the Class of 2023 are just a few of the things that occur during May Orientation.
There is no advantage to attending either day of Orientation. You will have the same opportunity to be placed in the classes you request and the orientation program is the same for both sessions.
For families there will be a schedule of events posted online and they will receive a paper copy once they arrive on campus. Your schedules are specific to the individual student and will be prepared the day before your arrival on campus for the orientation program. You will also receive a paper copy once you arrive on campus.
Your family will have a separate schedule prepared just for them. They will have the opportunity to attend a brief overview of the first-year advising program during a group meeting with your adviser.
Coffee and juices will be available during registration for all guests without charge. In addition to this, there will be a mid-morning refreshment break for families. Lunch will be provided for all Orientation participants. Lunch times will be different for students and families.
Most students will be finished by 3:30 p.m. Some athletic teams hold team meetings at 3:30 p.m. and students will be notified individually by the coach.
Please complete the online registration form and make certain that you check off the “Unable to Attend” box. If you are unable to attend, we will contact you after Orientation with instructions on how to register for classes, contact your adviser, housing selection, health/medical forms, etc.
