A key opportunity for introduction to the EMU experience is participation in the undergraduate orientation program which is designated to help new students (first-year and transfer) make connections and adjust to the university.

An important aspect of orientation for first year students is participation in small groups led by returning students. These groups provide an excellent opportunity to build relationships and learn more about the EMU community.

New students receive detailed information about orientation in July and August (December for January’s spring semester entrants). For more information, contact the student life office at (540) 432-4135 or go to:  www.emu.edu/studentlife/orientation
