Ready to dive in, Foresters?

All new students are highly encouraged to participate in New Student Orientation. New students living on campus this school year will move into the residence halls on Thursday, August 27. Commuters and new student-athletes will join New Student Orientation beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 28.

While our goal is to provide an in-person New Student Orientation experience, we do ask that you help us return to campus safely and with everyone’s well-being in mind as we request everyone to wear a mask when appropriate and to maintain social distancing to the best of your ability.

All faculty and staff will also be wearing masks. We’re in this together and will become a stronger Forester Family because of it. We look forward to getting to know you during this year’s New Student Orientation.
