Our online orientation has been designed with students in mind. You’ll be talking to an orientation leader, connecting with fellow students, and meeting with your advisor. These experiences are all intended for just the student. We will be providing a parent and family focused resource page which will cover the information that pertains to your support systems. Stay tuned!
In order to watch sessions and interact with our hosts, you will need to utilize Zoom. It can be helpful to download Zoom beforehand, but it is not required. If you are not familiar with the program, you can visit the Zoom Help Center.
In order to chat with our students and staff, you will use a messaging platform called Unibuddy. You will be prompted to create an account, which only takes a few moments! From there, the platform should look very similar to regular messaging apps you already use like iMessage, WhatsApp, or Facebook Messenger.
Our online program will begin at 9:00 a.m. and we will have consecutive sessions until 11:00 a.m. You will also be assigned one 30-minute academic advisement session between 11:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. You will be contacted by an advisor with your assigned time the week before your scheduled GO session.
You will be told if you qualify for placement exams when you sign up for GO. You will also receive email reminders.
Time will vary for each student. The week of your GO session you will be contacted by an academic advisor with an assigned time for your 30 minute academic advisement meeting. You will be finished with your GO session following the completion of advising.
